My Backstory
Born in Brooklyn, New York, to an American pureblood wizard lawyer with French parents, and a French squib mother, I attended Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft Wizardry in the Wampus house for two years until my family moved to France. I was stuck with the choice of staying at Ilvermorny or going to Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and ended up choosing the latter because I love changes and discovering new things (also, there are more school breaks!)
When I left Ilvermorny, even though I had told them that I was moving, they didn't let me take my first wand with me so I had to buy a new wand, (of which I'm still very happy with,) in a little village in the Pyrenees near Beauxbatons. Two years later, I got bored with Beauxbatons and was becoming increasingly interested in Hogwarts, where many famous wizards and witches had gone to, so in my fifth year my parents brought me to King's Cross in London to board the Hogwarts Express.
At the Sorting, at first I thought that the Hat wouldn't place me because I didn't live in the UK so I didn't get my letter or because I wasn't a first year, but I ended up being happily sorted into Ravenclaw.

My favorite subjects are Herbology, Care of Magical Creatures, Astronomy, Transfiguration, Ancient Runes, and my best class is Defence Against the Dark Arts. I'd like to be part of a student exchange trip with the Brazilian school Castellobruxo to study their wonderful magical flora and fauna and when I graduate I aim to be a Magizoologist!
When I’m not studying or doing research projects you can probably find me practicing my flute, reading a good book, or painting, sculpting or sketching in the Ravenclaw Common room, or on my broom in the grounds trying to teach my friends how to play Woccer (wizarding soccer, duh!!) It's way better than Quidditch or Quodpot!
