This July I will graduate with a Master's degree in sports events management from the University of Paris, Nanterre. I have lived with disability since birth, and have learned to adapt: I get around in an electric wheelchair; my mobility is rigged to my phone, my computer, or even operated with a joy stick.
I have always been very passionate about sports: I am a referee for the official college table tennis championships in France; participated in the 2016 European Cup of Wheelchair Football Clubs; my club, Vaucresson, were champions of France’s division two in 2019. Today, I am president of Neosports, an association which aims at organising inclusive sports events that mixes together athletes with disabilities and those without.
I also trained as a youth counsellor, and now also train future “animateurs”, as they are called in France. There is even a documentary on this chapter of my life called J’ai Passé mon BAFA. In September I look forward to new adventures in the field of sports events.
