Missa Garcia has joined our team as an intern! Missa is French and grew up in Bordeaux in the south-west of France. She studied law at the University of Bordeaux, and is currently completing her master’s degree with a specialization in international law. In September, she is planning to take the bar exam in France to become an admitted attorney.
We look very much forward to working with Missa and have so many questions…
What was your first job?
I was a babysitter when I was 18.
Breakfast or dinner?
Dinner. It is the occasion to bond with your loved ones, reunite and talk about each other’s day.
What do you cook when you spontaneously have friends over for dinner?
Spaghetti with homemade Bolognese. It is not a complicated recipe, but everyone agrees when it comes to pasta.
Mountains or Seaside?
Seaside. My hometown is not far from the ocean, so it holds a lot of memories for me.
If you could meet someone famous, dead or alive, who would it be?
Simone Veil. She is an inspiring woman and would have great stories to tell.
Which was your favorite place to live so far?
Italy. I was an “au pair” during the summer of 2021 and got to experience La Dolce Vita!
Digital or analogue?
Favorite time of day?
Sunset. Beautiful colors and in between the two worlds that are day and night.

Window – to admire landscapes.

The 14th of July. It is France’s National Day. At night, the sky lights up with fireworks from everywhere. It is exciting!
Last new thing you learned?

Three words to describe Berlin?
Multicultural, historical and pleasant.
Three words to describe your hometown Bordeaux?
Charming, Chocolatine (the way we call Pain au Chocolat in the south-west) and wine.
