About Me: 

I am a 71 year old student studying Interior Design and French. I have always wanted to go to college and now I am able to do it. I have attended classes before, but never was able to finish due to children and working. I have five children ranging in age from 53 to 24, and I have eight grandchildren. I am hoping to study in France as part of my education.
I am very excited about this project, translating Congolese women's writing from French into English. I just completed my first and will start another next week.

My Passions: 
French and Interior Design
My Challenges: 
I'm pretty old, but young at heart.
My Vision for the Future: 
I want to see all the killing and greed stop.
My Areas of Expertise: 
I sew, and have done accounting for many years.
My Languages: 
English, French
