🗣 Describe yourself in 3 words:
I would describe myself as ambitious, people-oriented, and passionate.
💬 What languages can you speak?
I can speak both French and English, as well as Italian (B2).
⚡ Do you have any interesting hobbies or talents?
I enjoy outdoor sports (climbing, skiing, running), yoga, travelling, and anything related to mental health and social issues.
🧲 What attracted you to Emérique & Partners?
I was initially attracted by the company culture, and how different the structure is to other similar companies within the industry, in terms of professionalism, quality of service, and credibility.
💭Why is your specialist sector interesting to you?
I like how fast-paced the contract industry is. I also find the banking/insurance industry so interesting because it is crucial to our society, and constantly evolving. The industry is in continual growth, and it is very innovative.
📖 What are you reading right now?
I am currently reading two books, the first one being People Person by Candice Carty-Williams. The second one is Three Mothers by Anna Malaika Tubbs, which tells the story of the mothers of Malcom X, Martin Luther King Jr and James Baldwin. It’s a great read!
☕ What’s your favourite way to start your day?
During the week, I always start by listening to a short, guided meditation to start the day relaxed and focused, which I recommend to anyone who is not a morning person (like me). On my days off, I like to start my day with a nice homemade breakfast in bed.
