University Undergraduate Student

I started to participate in humanitarian projects as soon as I could, at 18, in South Africa. This was such a rewarding experience that I pursued in this way in parallel of my studies in architecture. I had the opportunity to do an internship in an association in Cambodia, and this time I would like to do a project in the long term, living in a community, learning their customs and their way of life. The human side of an adventure like this is as important, or even more, than the architectural side.
I decided to make a gap year between my license and my master to be able to leave at least 9 months. The main criteria would be to be in a Spanish-speaking Latin American country because it is a language, a culture and landscapes that interest me particularly.
I also would like to do the adventure with Juliette Pornon who is an engineer, and with whom I am very complicit. We would like to find a project with a real local need, the goal is not to impose ourselves but to use everyone's knowledge to build together. Also, we would like it to be a small or medium sized project to be able to think it deeply.
I am fortunate to be helped and supported by Ismail El Kasmi who made me discover and included me in the association and who is on it to continue in this way.

I would like to start in september 2018, for 9 months or more in full-time. I can also work from now to prepare the project.
