I was born in France, studied journalism in Europe and in the US, worked very briefly in London and a little while in Paris. I moved to Berlin in 2016 and I’m now mostly writing about the energy transition in The Beam magazine. After Monica told me about Instead of Kids, I spent hours thinking about the pressure I felt since I was a kid, about all the time I had to justify myself to my family about why I would probably never have kids, and about how I have been raised to become a perfect woman and future mother. Sharing this experience and learning from others is for me a pretty interesting therapy!
