WHAT ARE THE SPECIAL QUALITIES OF THE FLOWER? HEALING? FUNCTION?
Lily cures skin problems, chapped skin and rosacea. It also embodies beauty and elegance, refinement and delicacy.

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD).
As a child, I was affected by bullying and mocking, which became a hindrance towards having accomplishments. Many people will say that my physical body was so advanced for my age because I grew up faster than others. My puberty came early enough, which has generated in my several complexes and during this time, I discovered I have a heart defect. Apart from that, I always kept my feelings to myself. I was often nostalgic during this period. I only kept the good things: summer camp, camping with my family, days watching animals in my garden, and all the innocence that I has during my childhood.

WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?
I would say that one of the most memorable moments of my life is the day I went to Disneyland for the first time last year!

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
My sister has two adorable daughters. My father, a musician, gave me the name Sonata in reference to the musical form in classical music. My brother also has a unique name "Danoe" in reference to the Greek Goddess Danae. My mother is a painter and jeweler and feels lucky to be able to count on me for parades and photos.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
Road trip in Venice and Québec at the last minute, without planning anything! I feel sensitive towards animal welfare and fights against any form of animal abuse and any oppression towards animals in circuses, zoos, all kinds of entertainment and tested for cosmetics. Animals should not have to be a slave. Environmentally we must give urgent concern to the dangerous spread of plastic waste in the sea. One can cry over the extinction of species. All must act in line with education, with the awareness of what is needed, so that it can be passed down to further generations. I am still optimistic despite people thinking it is too late because of the new innovations emerging and encourages everyone to show and have hope, and to change. I think that any misery in the world deserve attention. As a law student, Human and women's rights is something I strongly advocate. In an advanced country like Europe we are freer and live within the protection of rights. But it saddens me to see that outside my country, several adversities and injustices still occur. Women are still circumcised, children die of hunger without an education, refugees are denied to enter countries. The problem may not be solved entirely, but instead, humans can welcome people with love and compassion, offer what we can with who we are, go on humanitarian trips, in events, associations. Do not forget that each one come from and will end in the same place, and encourages everyone to stop cultivating negative differences and helping without anything in return.

WHAT TIPS CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE ECOTOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE?
For Ecotourism stick to transportation with the least pollutants like cars and planes. Efforts to preserve the environment are to travel on foot or bike on land, stick with local producers and shops. Promote innovations that are environmentally friendly like solar chargers, consuming responsibly without pollution.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
Like most French People I am particularly proud of its gastronomic wealth. We have many specialties in different regions and there is something for everyone! I am also proud of the place of human rights in my country, because France is one of the most advanced countries with this. I hope that this will continue and that dictatorships are far behind. I am proud of the natural heritage of my country that links mountains and seas and oceans to become one with an exceptional panorama! There are many nature reserves and heavenly places where I like to escape for a weekend to reconnect with nature.

WHAT CAN YOU PROMOTE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY?
Once again, what I like to promote about my country is its gastronomy. One of my favorite French dish is tartiflette, a dish made from Savoyard cheese called Reblochon, potatoes and onions, a treat in winter! But I also like to talk about the Pyrénnées National Park. Native to the southwest of France, I am lucky to be next to the ocean and the chain of the Pyrenees where I often goes hiking to enjoy the beautiful scenery. If someone should visit France one day, I advise them to go there first!
