My relationship with France began at 3 years old when my grandmother, a European from Morocco, taught me to sing Frère Jacques. Since then, I have been learning its language and culture in the classroom, on the street and working at French companies.
After my husband and I met at a French language meet-up in Orange County, California, he accompanied me to New York so I could complete a Masters in French Studies at New York University. After three years in New York and lots of hard work, my husband was offered a CDI contract at a media company in Paris. We now live in the 10th arrondissement near the picturesque Canal Saint Martin and enjoy discovering new corners of The City of Light every day.
The goal of Pasa’s Paris is both to share our experiences and to help others in the many steps it takes to become established as a foreigner in France.
