I graduated from a STI2D baccalaureate (Science and Technology of Industry and Sustainable Development) followed by a degree in BTS Electronics. I then moved on to a professional bachelor's degree specializing in web design and I continued with a master's degree in CEO & Digital Expertise at the EEMI on a work-study basis.
2/ Could you tell us more about your current role / your missions?
I am currently in charge of digital communication at LOUIS DREYFUS ARMATEURS Group. My job consists of supporting Sylvie VIRASACK, Head of the Communication Department, in various missions such as maintenance or redesign of some of the Group's websites, communication on social media, internal communication and also creation of commercial documentation in particular (leaflets, powerpoint presentations, communication support…)

Every day is different and that’s what I like. I truly appreciate the wide variety of interesting projects and being able to call up on my versatile profile by trying to best meet these different missions.
4/ Could you name 3 must-have qualities for this job?
I think that in my job the main qualities are autonomy, ability to come up with new ideas and responsiveness.
5/ Any anecdote or major fact you would like to share about your job?
I quickly noticed that communication was at the heart of the LDA Group and from the very beginning, there was a lot to do and I’ve had to work on so many projects. However, this allowed me to catch up on the missions very quickly and to facilitate my integration into the Group. That’s a very positive point.
6/ Are you a land or sea person?
I am a land person! To be honest, I can suffer from seasickness. I admire my fellow seafarers for their courage and ability to stay on board for weeks or even months.
7/ What are your hobbies and interests?
I am a big fan of sports in general, although my favorite sports are football and basketball. I also like cinema, music and photography.
8/ What is your motto?
I don't have any personal motto. I just try to give my best all the time.
