Connoisseur of luxury products, digital marketer by trade and art-enthusiast at heart, Amélie DEMAN is quite the jack of many trades. She is of Vietnamese descent, but was adopted at 2 months old and raised in Lille, France, which she describes as a “dynamic” and young city full of art galleries and museums. Although the city is ideal for her passion of art, Amelie still found herself wanting to explore outside the borders of Lille and expand her professional network.
The year ended with a celebration of hard work and new beginnings.

French native and 23-year-old Anaïs is nothing short of amazing. She has proven to be a very intuitive and intellectual individual at such a young age.
