What was your first competition?
My first competition was on the Magnetic France team where I finished 2nd place out of 100 competitors. It was tip box competition with no theme. We had to use the aquarell painting, gel and 3D acrylic. My representation was called "Angel Woman" and she brought me luck!

 

What made you decide to compete?
I think my competitive spirit always has been a motivation in me. I was born with it in my blood. My past as a military commando green beret Marine was decisive for the rest of my professional life and my personal choices. I believe that there are no great things that can stop me! :)
