Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

Father was involved in boxing, so I started with this sport and twice won the French title when I was teenager. My sister, who was playing volleyball, convinced me to try. Beach volley ball was a way to keep playing during summer once the season was over. Now, it's my full on sport and I'm glad to play and live my passion, to achieve my goals: play in the Olympic Games.
