Some Interesting Facts
My parents are from a little group of islands called Cape-Verde. The archipelago is located on the west side of Africa, about 500 km (or 300 miles) from Senegal. Although I really love my parents’ country of origin, I was born and grew up in France, in a little town in the French Alps called Thonon-les-Bains.

A Few Words About Me
My Awesome Story
After graduating with a B.T.S. in Communication des Entreprises in 2007, I packed my bags and moved to the United States, landing in Detroit. Coming to this country without my family was a BIG change, but something inside me -call it destiny- just attracted me here.
In 2010, I graduated with a Bachelors in Public Relations and decided to further my education with a Masters in Media Arts, learning video production, and a Certificate in Communication and New Media. After graduation, I created my brand AB. Designs and started to work as a freelancer for various clients such as non profits, museums, musicians and other independents.
In today’s economical climate, I want to be able to multitask and my skills allow me to do so. Now don’t get me wrong I am far from done, which is great because I love to learn.
The various positions I have held allowed me to gain knowledge which is truly invaluable. I love event planning, design, videography, new media and I am very happy to be in a position that allows me to marry all these fields.
Lastly, I am fluent in French (obviously), Portuguese and Cape Verdean (Creole Portuguese). I am currently working on improving my and Spanish and want to learn Mandarin.

I AM A BLACK IMMIGRANT IN THE USA
The recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmed Arbery among many others, and the global protests that followed across the world have left me perplexed, angry and scared. In this current climate of insecurity, the news coverage concerning racial segregation, police brutality, and the wealth gap between whites and people of color has also intensified. As a black woman and immigrant currently residing in the United States, I am now asking myself, what does it mean to be a black immigrant in the USA today?
