Bio










My name is
Rosie, I’m 27 years old and am currently living in the suburbs of Paris.

I was born
in England to English parents and come from an entirely English family.

My parents
met in Dubai so when I was three weeks old, we travelled back to Dubai to
settle into living there.

We lived
there, mostly, full time for 9 years before moving to France.

This new
move was always part of the plan as my parents had bought and renovated a beautiful
house in the South of France before I was even born! Because of this, my
parents put me into the French education system from primary school and for the
rest of my education, even in Dubai.

This
allowed me to learn English at home and French at school. Therefore, I’m 100%
bilingual, but I have always considered English to be my mother tongue.

 

Languages
were always a passion of mine so I studied them in high school. English was
always my first language (unfortunately it was obligatory) and I also studied
Spanish and Italian – which I absolutely love but unfortunately don’t get many
chances to speak it…

After the Baccalaureate,
I went on to study International Business and Marketing which allowed me to
travel to the United States for the last year of my Bachelor’s degree. It was a
great experience attending school and lessons in English instead of French for
the first time in my life.

 

After
getting my degree, I decided I wanted to start working and gain my independence
from my parents.

I settled
in Paris 3 years ago and have worked for two companies while living here: IDEAL
Meetings & Events – an event planning agency – and Trésor du Patrimoine – a
company specialized in selling collectible coins and other objects:

I have
recently decided to start my own freelance translation company. The idea came
from being regularly asked to do translations my entire life and in most jobs I’ve
done. Juggling between French and English has been a big part of my life,
whether it be to help out friends and family or for a job.

It has
always been a fun and interesting experience no matter what language I was
translating from. It now comes naturally to me.

I’m hoping
that with this new business I will become financially and professionally
independent. A new chapter in my life is beginning and is very exciting!
