Bio: 
I am a 21 year old French and Finnish girl who was born in Switzerland. I have lived most of my life in France, started with the french school system to graduate from High School with a International Baccalaureat. I have travelled a lot in my life and right now I am studying in Boston, USA, at Emerson College for a major of Media Arts Production, minor in Photography. I speak French, Finnish, English fluently and I can understand German. I have worked in different areas, I have been a waiter for a summer in South of France, I have worked for a gallery in Paris, I did an internship last summer for a startup company called JUCH and I was their photographer and communication manager.
Volunteering Experience: 
My first volunteering project was in Morocco when I was in high-school. I founded a project called Ighalen project with two of my classmates. During two years, we collected money by doing bake sales, event such as Valentine's Gala, etc... and at the second year, we went to Morocco to a Berber Village called Ighalen to help construct a play area for the kids at their school as it was in the mountains. This is an important aspect, because when their is heavy rain in the berber mountains, the soil moves and makes small avalanches of soil which can kill the students. At the same time, during my first year, I helped a project called Kids4Kids which was an organization that helped buy school furniture and books for a school in the Philippines. So we created a big gala dinner where we had ruffle, bids, and different other ways of collecting money. For a month before this event I was going through all shop near Paris to try to get them to donate some of their products. Moreover, in the summer 2014 I went to Laos with my family for a couple weeks to help an orphanage school. During that time we renovated one of their dorms, we cleaned the dorms and then painted the walls again, we helped them learn English and we cooked with them. It was a very nice to be able to play with them soccer and then also be serious and teach them English. Furthermore, this year, I am working with a company called English For New Bostonians, where I go once a week teach English to adults who have traveled to America to get a better life. It teaches me great values, and understanding and patience, as not all students are at the same level. Some speak better English then others and some are more timid then others.
