About me

 

I am a french native speaker from Paris, living in London for almost a year. I am doing an MBA at Hult International Business School and I will complete y degree next year in August. I am looking for a job to improve my skills on the first and hand also know how to work in a corporate environment in another country and another language on the other hand. Being outside my comfort zone is a challenge I intend to achieve. I wish to be able in 4 or 5 years to have my own company in Cameroon dedicated to talents and events.
