Immersed in a city "full of life", Jeddah, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
He was born "in Lille, North of France, on August the 30th, 1989. I grew up in Paris before going back to Lille for high school. I studied Foreign Languages at the University of Lille. I then went to study at the University of Leeds, in northern England. After I graduated with my Master’s degree in International Business and Negotiation I had the great opportunity to be the first and only French to ever study at the University of the Kingdom of Bahrain. After this amazing experience, having perfected my knowledge of both English and Arabic, I wanted to join the French diplomacy in the Gulf region. I applied for a job here in Jeddah and got hired. "
Today he is "Consular attaché at the visa department at the Consulate General of France in Jeddah. I meet people of so many nationalities and backgrounds, I get to know and understand new cultures, values and traditions. The beaches are beautiful, the dives in the Red Sea breathtaking. The fish market, the corniche or the old town « Al Balad » listed as World Heritage Site by the UNESCO make of Jeddah such beautiful city. It is also the biggest commercial port of the region. It’s a dynamic city, alluring, a unique city that I love. "
Saudis "love France. They are very curious and interested by our culture and traditions. They are always very friendly, open-minded and happy to meet French people who chose their country to live in."
"Saudi Arabia is a unique country, complex to understand but very much fulfilling and compelling. One should have great adaptability skills for a successful expatriation, especially in here."
