About me: I'm originally from France but grew-up in Malta and Dubai, gaining exposure to diverse and international communities. Prior to starting the Masters in Financial Analysis at LBS, I moved to the United Kingdom to pursue a bachelor's degree in Economics and Finance at Loughborough University.

In terms of professional experience, I worked at State Street's Corporate Audit division in London, allowing me to deepen my understanding of finance and get better clarity on my future aspirations and the skills required. This motivated me to continue developing my financial acumen as well as my hard and soft skills to pursue a career in Asset Management.

I therefore aspired to join LBS, because I was confident that its worldleading reputation, vibrant multicultural community, and practical learning approach would support me in launching my career. So far, my experience has been beyond what I expected, and I look forward to making the most of LBS' enriching and varied resources and opportunities.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking part in sports, especially handball, which I've been playing competitively for the last 8 years. I also appreciate getting involved within the LBS community, where I've joined the Investment Management Club and Social Impact Club.
