I was born in Belgium but grew up in Zurich/Switzerland. My parents only ever spoke French to me and my (younger) sister, so we were both really lucky to grow up bilingual French/German. I’d say that I have very much a French culture as I grew up with French nursery rhymes, French music and virtually all my school holidays were spent in my mum’s family in Liege/Belgium.
My story is first and foremost a love story. Love knows no borders after all. I was born and raised in Belgium. All my life I’d had this feeling that my destiny was to leave my country for good one day.
