When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a teacher like my mom.

What was the last book you read?

7 ans après by Guillaume Musso.

What is your favourite Lancer moment?

Winning the CIS final in Windsor with the St. Denis being packed. It was a really great atmosphere with the party army cheering away and all the fans being there.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

Winning the European Championship with the under 20 French national team in Poland, although being the CIS female athlete of the year is pretty close second.

Who is your hero and why?

My dad. I admire all of his hard work and dedication to his family.

What does being a Lancer mean to you?

It means representing the city that has given me a lot but also bringing a European touch to it. It’s always great to compete and try to give back to the fans that give us already so much. I’m really glad I got to be part of this for the past five years and the community has a lot do with it.
