By combining creative-driven agencies and ambitious brands, I've been lucky enough to win over a hundred awards. On a national level, I was honored with the Creative Belgium “Best Art Direction” award three times. Last year I received the famous ‘Creative Of The year’ award in Belgium.

At Cannes Festival, I received 1 Gold Lion, 4 Silver and 7 Bronze and was also rewarded in Eurobest, New York festivals, European Mixx Awards etc.

Along my career path, I realized the lack of diversity in the creative teams in terms of gender, culture and skills. Even before entering the professional world, I noticed that our society - already from an early age - has a tendency to limit our ambitions.

I've seen too many students, young women, wives or mothers, give up their creative careers even though they loved it. As we are often perceived as we see ourselves, I strongly believe in the primordial role of good education.Hence, I decided to dedicate part of my time to encourage and to support the women around me.

In order to start from concrete figures rather than a perception, I proposed to do a national survey to get concrete figures on gender diversity in the creative world. The findings went beyond my own perceptions.
