My name is Agnès NGO UM EYONO, I am 36 years old and I am from France.
After obtaining my master’s degree in Administration, Economic and Social, then my Bachelor in Transport and Logistics, I worked for 10 years as a logistics coordinator.
I had the opportunity to work in three different business sectors as Automotive, Events and Health. Through these different positions, which were all open to the international market, I was able to practice in English and acquire a good foundation.
In March 2020, I had to go to Sweden to improve my English in order to have access to positions with more responsibility. However, during the lockdown period, I decided to work on my own business. This is how I created my Bellenceinte business, which offers clothing and accessories for pregnant women and babies.
I chose Sweden out of curiosity, especially since it is not the first destination you think of, when you want to do a language study trip. I must admit that I was very pleasantly surprised by the welcome, the beauty of the country and the peaceful and relaxing way of life.
I hope by the end of this internship to have a better level of English, especially spoken, because I really need it to develop my business internationally. I also hope to meet new people and learn more about Swedish culture.
