1. What’s your name?
Laura (but in some countries, I’m Lau)
2. Where are you from?
I am from France (a tiny town near the Alps – but unfortunately not as quaint as it sounds)
3. Why do you enjoy reading Life Lovers Magazine?
It tickles the travel bug inside me, makes want to travel again, travel differently, try new things, and it makes me travel when I cannot.
4. What are you passionate about? | What’s your business? (Feel free to share your contact and links).
I am passionate about languages, arts and the diversity of cultures. No wonder I became a translator and subtitler for films! I get to travel a little and learn about the world from my desk.
5. What empowers you as a woman?
I am a huge advocate for gender equality and more specifically through language (and trust me, French has room for improvement).
Using a gender inclusive way of speaking fights women’s invisibilisation and on a personal scale it makes me feel more empowered and legitimate as a woman. The way we speak shapes the way we think, and I want to think I can do anything!
