Nouvelles stagiaires au consulat!

The time has come to say a big thank you and goodbye to our two previous interns Tessa and Lucie. Over the past six months, they have both been at the reception desk of the Consular Agency in Melbourne, informing users on their administrative questions and helping to organize events such as the Bastille Day French Festival or other smaller events. We wish them good luck for their future projects.

Since the beginning of August, we are delighted to welcome our two new interns, Claire and Emma.  They write and translate articles on this blog and are also responsible for creating content for the consulate’s social media. They also assist the Consular Assistant Matthieu Morin with the greeting of the public, and with various daily administrative tasks. How lucky we are to have them!

Emma: Hello hello! My name is Emma and I am doing a Masters in International Relations in Lyon. I arrived in Australia a year ago as part of an exchange at the University of Melbourne. In my free time ,I take ballet lessons at the Australian Ballet as well as flamenco lessons. Growing up in the Alps, I skied competitively throughout my childhood. – See you soon at the consulate!

Claire: Hello! My name is Claire and I am studying law and French at Monash University. I am Australian but love all things French and recently returned from a year in Paris. In my free time, I enjoy doing aerial arts, trying new restaurants, and hiking! You will see me on Mondays and Thursdays at the Consulate 🙂
