I am French, born in Toulouse but brought up in Bordeaux and quickly turned to charities thanks to generous parents and grandparents whose activities (teaching, holiday camp animators, association members....quickly shaped my mind.
Since my childhood I opted for philanthropy :
smiling, sharing, giving, ....just following my family's steps, regardless of origin, religion or race (not to mention mental or physical abilities) : indeed, we often forget that birth is not equal, neither had anything to do with some religious power: what we can master is the way we approach others, the way we can help each other develop skills that may be lying deep inside ourselves but require others' help or backing to emerge.
I am honoured to be part of the Props Community: this is probably not just Fate but also friendship and shared values that led Kevin Smith and I meet through this wonderful organisation named 'Association Bordeaux Bristol'!
This started in 2011 with some members of our Committee contacted by Dordogne-based Bristolians wondering if we had ever heard of this ride: from that year our collaboration has grown stronger and stronger.
I can truly say we all belong to ONE family!

Event details

A Teacher AND Chairwoman of Bordeaux Bristol

Our cities are twinned? YES, now heading for 70 more years !....I once discovered my twin city through the Bordeaux Bristol Association: I was 15 then! This was the start of a long love story (still going on!) that led me to embrace the British culture and turn from paediatrician dreams to teaching! The link is clear for me: dedication and wish to transmit whichever form of knowledge one may have, provided it gives others a possibility to reach adulthood via integration, respect of others and self-confidence.
I regularly visit Props, always amazed at the staff's work and concern for students and their families!
If, as the Chairwoman of the Bordeaux Bristol Association for School , Sports, Cultural Exchanges , I can contribute to act and bridge our already strongly linked cities , then I will.
Those students are a real booster and THEY teach me so much!...
DO understand that GIVING is what enables so many left outs find a way to exist : I cannot forget this experience and hope to set up sustainable exchanges between Props and a Bordeaux Institute: That would be awesome!
I registered for next year! DO the same and Donate for all miles covered for students!
