    I am a daughter of Marseille.

    It is a city of a multiculture. Christian, Jewish and Muslim, but there are many others in the fabric of the city. Three thousand Buddhists live here too, and set us all an example. The city has so many colours and scents, the fragrance is of a busy, enterprising place. I...

    Actually Cajun

    I'm really an eighth Acadian, but through family history I discovered that I'm the multi-great-grandchild of some Duke from Orleans (the one in France, not the New one). It's a big difference being Cajun versus French because as far as I've seen, we're like the rednecks in the...

    I am a Parisian who lives close to the Arc de

    Triomphe. The café that my family owns often gets a lot of tourists and I (unintentionally) end up having to drop out of my barista work for the day to become a tour-guide, helping tourists get to destinations and whatnot. I really should get paid for that!

    Everything about me is French.

    From my name to my appearance. I grew up in a Dutch town speaking French at home. Everyone says French men are so sincere and romantic and such. My father was the kind of valley-redneck-you-don't-wanna-mess-with French. He was the exception to the stereotypes.

    My mother's maiden name means "of [location"
