I was born and raised in France but my parents are from Africa and the Caribbean island which has a lot of tension between the two communities because of slaver and history. I was brought up by my mom side with Caribbean culture and also by my dad side with African culture but I also have French and European background which makes me different and more diverse then anyone else. In my family it was not tense I was raised that I have all these cultures and you should take all of them and not choose one side or the other.
I applied for film school and was accepted because of the historic background and my family. I have a different way of seeing things and approaching things. That's how I got into the school.
I have three different stuffed bears which are three different colors. They belong to my twin brother and me. My bear’s name is Totham. When I feel lonely, when I miss my family, I hug my little bears and I feel better.
