I help with the organization of academic events and project support at the University of London Institute in Paris.
Since the summer of 2016, I have been helping with the organization of academic events and ceremonies. Everyone here is a pleasure to work with; caring and generous like a welcoming family. Working in a bilingual environment provides many moments for thought and laughter. Languages provide different perspectives of thought, philosophy, and humor, which we can overlook or never know without another voice.
My favourite thing to do in Paris is to cycle through the neighborhoods and find old shops - butchers, bakers, wine merchants, cobblers... Sometimes you find places where nothing seems to have changed for a generation or two and, because of this, the clientele are dedicated and the vendors proud.
