Lina grew up in the suburbs of Paris. When she is not busy fighting for minorities' rights, you'll find her cooking pastries. A sophomore at Sciences Po Paris, she studies Political Humanities in the Europa-Africa Program, she is fascinated by African history and sociology and is learning Swahili.
Her life-long dream is to become a teacher. Coming from an alternative highschool, she considers her students to be her equals. She uses innovative methods which prove to be efficient: she graduated highschool obtaining the highest honors. Even so, she will still teach you French while baking macarons together. Passionate about French literature and activism, she wants to give each child the opportunity to find their passions, and invent their own utopia.
Winner of the Prix Cicéron, French national contest of eloquence, Lina likes to play with words and will teach her students to feel confident to speak up.
Lina was National Secretary of a students' rights federation. Passionated by politics she organized numerous actions and partook in negotiations with the French government to defend a good studying environment for all.
Participating in feminist and LGBTQ+ associations and volunteering to help the refugees in her city, Lina will make sure everyone feels valued, included and in a safe space in her classroom.
