Hi there!

Hello everyone, I’m Mathilde, 29 years old, french and living in Nantes. The idea behind ‘a french girl in France’ is to offer a french perspective on what this country is really about.

So that’s me and I am thrilled to be soon sharing with you the ups and downs of ‘a french girl in France’. Stay tuned.
