AURELIE MARTINOD

 

(If you are Australian, don’t try to say her name, you can’t 🙂 )

Aurélie Aka Lilou is a vivacious young woman from the South of France, Marseille (oui oui like Caroline). She loves Koalas, chocolate, “fromage”, and humming songs on the train. She’s very active and loves sports like swimming and going to the gym, but sometimes she just prefers to stay on the couch watching a good series.

She’s been living in Australia for one year but she already wants to stay forever. She is impatient to discover everything Australia has to offer, but she is also afraid to meet a snake on the road.

Graduated with a Masters in Journalism and Web Communication, in search of endless enrichment, writing has become a part of her life. For Aurélie, her craft is a continual stroll to meet new personalities, to discover new artistic treasures for an endless enrichment. She wants to bring the reader into her universe and make them discover new things. She likes people and learning from them. But she sometimes prefers Koalas and chocolate to humans.

Anyway, she loves life.
