Bonjour, I'm Gwenaëlle!

I'm a particle physicist by day, volunteer translator and editor for GV Lingua French by night, language passionate 24/7. Strong advocate that the languages we speak all deserve equal respect, and that Europe could be a better place if it valued its regional languages, I tweet on the topic at @DiffractedWord (personal account) and @AcademieDuGallo (organisation I co-founded for the revival of Gallo, the Romance language of Brittany). I grew up in France, lived in NY State, am now settled on the South English coast and never go to India often enough.

Hum, 2017? Start my language blog (finally!) + be able to have short chats in Hindi + meet more fellow GV members.

Also a cheese-lover, a chatterbox, and a bookworm. Get in touch!
