Bonjour à tous! // Hey y’all!

My name is Robin – I’m a witty and bubbly writer and francophile with a passion for telling stories and seeking out new experiences across the globe.

My pink passport and I have traveled around 31 countries and counting. The only thing I value more that seeing new places and things is immersing myself in the present, getting to know people on a personal level, and learning how to feel at home even when I’m thousands of miles away.

After all, what’s the point of staying in your comfort zone? It’s time to live life to its fullest and get out into the world!

I’m originally from Roanoke, Virginia and am a 2020 graduate from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana with majors in political science, communications, and French.

In Fall 2018, I began this blog as a way to document my semester abroad in Paris as an exchange student at Sciences Po. I have completed internships in the political communications field at The U.S. Department of State, The Brookings Institution, The U.S. Agency for International Development, and Curley Company.

Now, it’s time for a new adventure! I’m back in France working as a primary school English teaching assistant in Paris through the Teaching Assistant Program in France (TAPIF). This is my second year participating in the program, though I spent the previous year living in Paris and commuting out to the southern suburbs of the city for work.

When I’m not blogging about my escapades or working on other creative projects, you can find me taking power naps, watching 90 Day Fiancé, going to CycleBar and Orange Theory classes, experimenting with new recipes, and claiming I’m from the South when everyone says I’m not.

I’m passionate about brunch, feminism, wine and cheese pairings, policy change, and the appropriate usage of the Oxford comma.

Follow along with Mes Voyages et Ma Vie to see where my adventures take me and learn from my experiences!
