Biography:

I am a native French speaker. I got my Bachelor's in African Literature and Civilization at the University of Douala (Cameroon) in 2012, and pursued a Master's at the University of Yaoundé 1 (Cameroon) in the same subject. For two years I was a tutor at the University of Yaoundé 1, where I taught ''African literature of the colonial period''  and ''African literature of post-colonial period''  to  undergraduates. I am the author of an upcoming novel titled ''Autopsie d'une république'' which is a summary of the social and political atmosphere of my country more than 50 years after independence. I am passionate about literature, and focus my investigations on the intertextuality and the evolution of French language through the centuries. It's amazing to see how French has been influenced by the different societies where it was spoken, so that we don't only have today ''une langue française'' , but ''Des langues françaises." Beyond our differences we are all human beings and it's enough to give respect and honor to everyone.
