I was born in Nice, France and moved to America when I was 18. After graduating with the highest honors from French high school with a major in economics and political sciences, I decided to make this big leap and flew to California to pursue my undergraduate studies at Santa Monica College, where I became deeply concerned regarding environmental and climate issues. While enrolled at SMC, I became a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society where I partook in various meetings, volunteering opportunities, events, and entered a community of like-minded thinkers. I graduated in June 2019 with a double Associate's degree in Environmental Studies and in Liberal Arts: Social and Behavioral Science, and received the highest honors (with a 4.0 GPA).
After my graduation, I was received into the prestigious and competitive NASA DEVELOP National Program. My teammates and I worked on a 10-week urban development project in partnership with the NYU City Health Dashboard to produce data assessing urban vegetation across 700 cities in the United States. Our end product will support better targeted urban planning and policies nationwide.
I transferred in September 2020 into the third year of a French Bachelor in Applied Sciences, Ecology and Society and, after my graduation this coming June, will pursue an MBA in Global Business at Laval University in Canada.
