Benedicte is my first name. I am a Friend, a Wife, a Mom, a Sister. I was born a little over 30 years ago in France from a very French family with a big crush for the USA.
Kansas, is the very first state I traveled to as a kid. I remember rolling down hills covered with cactus, dust tornados and warm, creamy, peanut butter toasts in the morning.
I first came to Maui in 2000. I was just turning 18. I traveled there by myself. I could barely speak a word of American, let alone understanding a word of what people would say to me when kindly trying to communicate. I moved-in with 3 local-American girls, got myself a job dishwashing in a busy restaurant and oh miracle! I could speak and understand a language teachers in France had failed to teach me for years.
Long story short. I went back to France as my visa expired, tried to get back into my French life for a few years. Failed. Applied to the green card lottery. Crossed all my fingers & toes. Won.
Moved to Maui in 2008 with my husband. Our son was born here in August of 2013. I became a US citizen the same year. I am thankful. A thankful Dreamer.
