Growing up, I had the chance to be surrounded by many people from many different cultures and background. Living in one of the most diverse city of the world, Paris, also helped a lot to be honest. I was then exposed to many representations and some was mirroring me, a third culture child, being in the highest level of education, in the highest level of leadership. That allowed me to have even more aspirations, be even more me and especially improve my learning of life by staying intentionally curious. Meaning asking the right questions and finding the best outcomes from our combined life experience learnings. Diversty, Equity and Inclusion or DE&I is the opportunity to visualize and to set the stone of a sustainable and successful future.
