Born and bred in a small town in the South West of France, a region well-known for its beautiful landscapes and medieval villages, but also and mainly for its gastronomy, Pauline was already headed for gluttony. It is at the age of ten years old, overlooking some ruins in Rome with a gelato in hand that she decided to find a way to study beauty as a living, or just do something that also enabled her to cook and bake and eat, and also travel most of the time. She spent a very happy childhood singing in the choir, and in several rock bands, baking madeleines and working as a summer camp leader during the holidays.

After three years of studying in a preparatory class in Toulouse, she moved to Paris for her master's and in the corridors of the Sorbonne saw a poster advertising for an exchange position as a French TA in Cornell. She came, saw and conquered, or at least decided to stay here and pursue a PhD in French literature at the Romance Studies department. When she's not studying or reading, you can find her at a zumba class somewhere, or baking a delicious treat, or watching a movie. She's a firm believer in the benefits of study breaks, and she's here to convert other people! Join her and you won't be disappointed!
