President of Diversity, journalist & consultant
“There was a definite turning point, which led me to found Diversity and engage as an activist. It was the moment in which I fully understood the responsibility that everyone has to their own personal sphere, and how much this sphere can always grow. I realised it thanks to motherhood. Before the birth of my daughters, I was convinced that I should constantly teach them something, but the truth is that I learned a lot. The great value of growing, and of going through each phase of our life, is understanding what we still have to learn. It is to unhinge prejudice.”
