daughter of Protestant missionaries who spent many years in Banganté, a
small Cameroonian town where she spent her childhood. She then returned to
France to further her studies. She married, had two children but decided to
return to Cameroon after divorcing her French husband. Back in Banganté
she became a teacher. A few years later she married again with the local
Chief, had two more children and lived in the Chief's compound until his death.
She then engaged in various agricultural projects with her children and family.
