"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

    I think it was at secondary school, I should be 19, whend I decided that I wanted to become a teacher in Maths. But at the very beginning, I think it was at primary school, I should be less than 12, the first job I was dreaming of was a pilote. You know I grew up in an under-developped country, so I quickly had to change my mind, because there was no school for that in the country, no company where to work...

    I think about my career only when I finish my studies.
    the studies take all of my time then I haven't any idea about what I'll do after that.
    A lot of projects came to my mind but I can't do anyone for this moment .
