Fabienne Flessel

I first joined as a translator for GV en français and have since discovered the power of “blogging”. It's only then that I started writing for GV Caribbean about the French-speaking Caribbean.
When I am not a GVer, I am an EFL teacher in Guadeloupe (where I am from).
I am deeply interested in social studies (gender, education, human rights) and the history and culture of people of African descent in the Americas.
