The Martinican entrepreneur and youth leader supporting the development of the Caribbean region through educational tourism
Tell us a little about yourself. In her own words.
I am from Martinique and I grew up in Paris. I completed my first degree at a preparatory class in the Grandes Écoles, in Economics and Business, then joined a business school and earned a Masters in Management with a double specialization in Digital Projects Management and International Relations. I studied for a long time because I found my academic adventure to be very positive. The support and kindness of my teachers allowed me to reach my full potential. Today, I work for the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Haiti.
What inspired you to start the Edu-carib program?
What inspired me to start the development of the Edu-carib program was essentially the lack of information on existing educational programs and trainings based in the Caribbean basin.
When I was younger and I was interested in pursuing university studies in the Caribbean I faced some barriers as the information online was so scarce. No platform listed, in a structured way, the training by specialty that was available in Caribbean educational establishments. It is from this experience that the Edu-carib project was born. This platform allows students wishing to pursue their studies in the Caribbean Basin to have a global platform, easy to use, where they will find practical information about the training available in the region. Edu-carib.com offers a range of practical information and everything you need to pursue your dream studies in the Caribbean!
