I’ve started my project at Vemma in a quite special way as it is my very good friend and roommate Martin Bertrand, the first Frenchman to have launched the current network, who told me about it. At first, I spent 3 weeks just accept for him to explain me about the concept, as it seemed so strange and new to me. At the same time, there was no French network, so it was not easy to be believable! And finally I've started with him, we have worked hard to translate and create documents in French, to understand the system. Today, a great team is present, which is improving quickly and especially with a good spirit, which is most important: the spirit of sharing a great opportunity with our friends, our close network.
In addition, what is amazing with Vemma is that everyone can do it at their own pace: in my case, I am training to be ready for the selection of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in windsurfing (I have been junior world champion in 2010), I am also a student in engineering school, and yet I find the time to devote myself to Vemma. Obviously, this is not the product of my work only, but a team of really motivated people, and this is what makes the strength of Vemma. Trust, communication, motivation, perseverance, and you can complete a project with social and financial dimensions that you would not even have imagined a few months ago... And the best thing is that we never stop learning and being surprised by this kind of activity, where will we be in a few months, years?
My story begins in College, when I did not know yet what I would actually do in my life. It was at this time that I was offered an opportunity to really take control of my life, and go to the direction I wanted. I have jumped at the chance. I think one must live with adventures in life, that's why we are on Earth.
We must not follow people on an unknown path, one must create their own path, and that is exactly what I am working on today, while helping my friends to do the same. There is no better feeling on Earth than feeling free and helping others experience the same thing. I am now fortunate to live my passions, and this is amazing.
Today I have reached a decisive milestone in this adventure, which comforts me even more in my choice. And I will not stop until all those who wish to do so have achieved their objectives. It is like that in France. One never stops. Anyway, it has just begun.
