Originally from Paris, France,  I completed a Master’s degree at the University of Grenoble in 2015 in Teaching French as a Foreign Language where I developed my interest in bilingual education by writing my thesis “Early childhood bilingualism: a case study of bilingual families”. Then, I decided to pursue my studies in the US and I earned a Master’s degree in Teaching French as a Foreign Language at the University of Arizona, where I taught French at different levels. My research interests include early childhood bilingualism and multilingualism, as well as the relationship between emotions, identity and L2 development.
