RESPONSIBILITIES IN THE PROJECT
I responsible for the communication among the team, the analysis of the requirements, the translation and correction of the text of the stories as well as the administrative work.
As an avid reader, I have several favorite authors: from Amadou Hampâté Bâ, Ousmane Sembene, Camara Laye, Aimé Césaire, Marcel Proust, Marcel Pagnol, Jacques Prevert to Daphne du Maurier and the Bronte sisters. In addition, I felt empowered listening to all type of music from Africa to Europe and America.
I enjoyed traveling, crafts and sport. During school vacations, I enjoyed travelling with my father who went on City tours all over the country. My grandmother and my mother taught me beadwork which I enjoyed doing on my spare time. Walking and running are my favorite exercise activities.
WHOM DID YOU DREAM YOU WANTED TO BECOME WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD
As a child, I dreamed traveling to all the fascinating places my father visited for his work. I wanted to learn as many languages as possible and I look forward to meeting people from different culture and being able to communicate with them in their own language. At the time, the profession did not matter as much as the ability to learn about other cultures and discover the beauty in each one.
FAVOURITE CHILDREN’S TALES/STORIES
Along with my siblings, I loved listening to my grandmother, storyteller in-chief of folktales. Sitting on her lap, I was fixated on the multitude of stories about animals, with diverse characters and unique personalities. I was extremely fascinated and intrigued by the curious personalities with, at time the peculiar habits, those animals took. My favorite stories were always about all the valiant characters who will always come and save the weak ones at the end.
WHAT WAS YOUR FONDEST MEMORY OF CHILDHOOD
I love animals especially wild animals whose stories always fascinated me during my childhood. One time, I captured a lost lion cub and tried to domesticate it to become my pet. I enjoyed caring for it, it was fun trying to figure out what to feed him. After awhile, I realized that after all, a lion cub was not meant to be domesticated so I let it go back to the savanna where it was happier.
