Over the summer, I was interviewed by Talking Alternative Broadcasting host Dominique de Croc from Pardon My French.
Talking Alternative Broadcasting’s vision is meant to be a true alternative to the world of Broadcast Talk Radio, reaching people from all over the world who are willing to share uplifting and empowering messages with their listeners.
PardonMYFrench.nyc looks to bring together different French-speaking national, ethnic and social groups to hear them talk about their immigration experiences and how they have built a community in their adopted country.
For me this interview was a particularly interesting and fun time. Though I have spoken several times around the subject of my daily professional work as a divorce and family mediator, never had I been asked to share publicly:
- My experience as an expat coming from Paris, France to New York;
- How I conquered many of my fears in the transition;
- Some of my difficult transitions;
- How living in New York City has truly opened so many doors for me, personally and professionally.
I was also asked to talk about my work as a divorce mediator. I help other expats now living in New York City who are experiencing breakdowns in their marriages, often leading to divorce, and all the while being away from their country of birth.
If you are interested in listening to part or all of my interview, it is in English but it is peppered with some interesting French nuances, music and comments about some of my reactions to life in the Big Apple.
I would love to hear your thoughts. You can use the box below to let me know what you think.
Usage of the French language is definitely encouraged!
A tres bientot mes amis!
