My first steps on the tatami, my crowning achievement at the Beijing Olympics, and my successful transition to a career in tourism and politics have shaped a diverse and rich trajectory. I share my experiences of self-transcendence, dealing with failure, and the pursuit of excellence.

I am fluent in French, German, and English.

Building Yourself Through Failure

My first book co-authored with Bernard Wirz, author of numerous philosophical works and martial arts expert.

This book explores the theme of self-construction through life’s trials and setbacks. Personally, it is facing failures that I have drawn the strength to become the person I am today.

Se construire par l’échec, Published by Slatkine Editions, released on October 6, 2023.
