Paris Love of my Life, London Eternal Lover, Kinshasa Best Friend Forever
This is who I am…
Thank you for visiting…
I was born and raised in Paris, France by Congolese parents.
When I was seven, I was stealing my mother’s Dutch Wax Block fabrics making clothes for dolls and selling them to my friends. I was also teaching dancing moves at 9 during our school breaks. Early on in my life, I demonstrated an entrepreneurial mindset emphasised by my managerial behaviour being the big sister of 5 other brothers and sisters.
Always being full of energy, my parents always kept me busy, and I was trained in Classical dance, gymnastics, ballet, modern & street jazz dances and triathlon where I won a few regional medals on the way. Nowadays, you can see me running in Hyde Park at least once a week.
From 16 year-olds, I worked every summer to save money for my first property working for MacDonald’s, a variety of fashion luxury stores or being a telephone customer service agent for mobile companies and banks.
My parents wanted me to have a stable profession, so I went to business school where I earned a Degree in Business Management (ESSEC). After graduation, I went on to work with some of the most successful beauty and fashion groups: L’Oréal and LVMH worked on a few brands and spent my internships working in Australia, China, Germany and Spain.
However, it was not long before I realised that working for others was not for me; though I loved my job, I felt I wasn’t making a difference and was just a new talented and replaceable executive in the company. I wanted to conquer the world and wanted my life bigger. I wanted to create something from scratch and be my own boss like my father did before me. Today, I am a London-based international entrepreneur with interests in fashion, leisure, production, publication, toys & hobbies and property. I strive to achieve a life that is balanced between my business interests, the projects and causes I passionate about and spending time with my family and friends.
