Cécile Perin

Hi! I’m Cécile, I’m 16 and I’ve lived in Paris, France, since forever. My mother is Peruvian so that’s how I learned Spanish and how i’ve been able to contribute to this great project “Cannelle la demoiselle”. I love studying with my cat Sora on my desk and i’ve been practicing judo for nearly 9 years now and I really love it! I’m more than excited to learn more about Cannelle’s future trips to different countries, so see you soon and take care y’all!

She began studying Spanish in kindergarten and French in high school, and now balances them both in her college studies. She doesn’t yet have a career path envisioned, but instead is very much enjoying the explorative process of her first few years of college. She is also a visual artist working both traditionally and digitally, and a beginner guitarist!
