Freelancer

From Paris, France

36 yo

 

What’s on your mind right now?

The running of my current projects.

Describe yourself in one sentence?

Intrapreneur, facilitator and offensive optimist. 

How would you describe the glass ceiling you had?

This glass ceiling was mainly in my head. I had hidden fears. I was afraid of being out of the line, of daring. I was even afraid to succeed.

How did it affect you? How did you feel at the time?

I didn't feel complete, I felt like something was missing inside me.

How did you realize you had a glass ceiling?

I realized it when I start meeting, through my job at the Women's Forum for instance, top level women. Role models from all around the world who had swept prejudice and fears. Women who went after their desires.  

How did you break this glass ceiling?

It happened step by step. Slow but sure. I overcame my fears one by one. 

I quit my last job to become a freelancer. I became a network person, I speak more easily to people I don't know just for the pleasure of talking, sharing.  

I also drive a 125 horsepower motorcycle. I'll soon pass the proper license for a bigger one. 

How do you feel about where you are today, after breaking your glass ceiling?

I crossed the road, I dared. The journey is still long but I feel stronger, more confident. I'm myself. 

 
 

What advice would you give to someone going through this glass ceiling?

The hardest is to make the first step out of your comfort zone. So you should stop being afraid and dare!

What are your upcoming projects?

Keep working with my clients, create a brand I have in mind for a while, have a long road trip...
