“As a Belgian with Congolese roots, I am lucky enough to get “best of both worlds”: The Belgian side was able to go to school from an early age, obtain a college degree, find a job, earn money to save and do nice things. The Congolese side is lucky enough to delve into its roots on a daily basis, to be surrounded by a large family, to seek out the sun in her homeland, to know Congolese cuisine, and to master several languages such as Lingala, Tshiluba and French.

April 2016, the first time I placed my feet on Congolese soil, was both impressive and overwhelming. On the one hand I had the time of my life and on the other hand I had so many tears left by the poverty I saw around me… I knew from that moment on that I had to do something for my country. Thanks to my sisters (-in-law) Emilie and Christel, I can keep my promise.”
