“Each letter of my first name resonates with who I am:
K = Kinshasa, in DR Congo where I was born before coming to Belgium when I was 6 years old.
E = Equality, I studied law to defend those who are deprived of it.
Y = YOLO (You Only Live Once), my mantra…
L = Languages: in addition to French (my mother tongue) I speak Dutch and English.
A = Afro-eco-feminism: a neologism that reflects my Afrofeminist and ecological values”.
