SEEKING SENSE SINCE CHILDHOOD
"I am French, born to a Cameroonian mother in Edéa, a town
in southwestern Cameroon. I spent my childhood in the city of
Douala, the economic capital of the country until my parents
moved to France when I was nine (summer 1989). Since that
date, I have lived successively in the PACA region, Upper
Normandy, Gironde, Haute Garonne and the Paris region ... I
now live again in Gironde in the town of Léognan, near
I am a product of the aeronautics industry in which I worked
for 7 years in Toulouse and in the Paris region, from my 22 to
my 29 years old.
I never wanted to pursue a career following the classic
pattern, that is to say to evolve in one or more companies
until reaching a hierarchical top that is satisfactory for his
ego. This has always translated into a certain instability in my
course and manifested itself in an unwavering desire to
experiment with new positions, new activities, new sectors.
Since my childhood, I have always wanted to become an
entrepreneur and participate in changing the world. However,
it has always been about serving a noble cause, helping people
and society. I know today that economic entrepreneurship
(the traditional and formal one) is not for me because it
bothers me and does not correspond to my values."
"I have spent many years of my life
unconsciously looking for my way."
