WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK
Throughout my 20 years of running enchanting French sessions in preschools, and the last 8 years where I've been coaching bilingual women to do the same thing in their own languages, I've heard so many stories about the challenges that these brave, beautiful women experienced as they made their new lives in their adopted countries.
On my end, I'm an Aussie with French influence from my husband and his family. We all live near Sydney and have navigated this blend of contrasting customs, perspectives, habits and ways of seeing the world in our own individual ways.
It hasn't always been easy. But I began to wonder . . . what if it could be easy? And fun!
This book was inspired by the joy of seeing the women I've coached blossom with confidence and charm while discovering these perspectives.
I really hope that my book successfully guides you to discover the life-changing power of creating your own unique identity on purpose, as you continue to navigate new experiences and evolve with confidence, style and joy in your adopted country.
