For Al Hassane, being international is being able to adapt and take the best out of other cultures. Both in the way you live and the way you work.

Being international means being open. In short it means accepting taht 4+4=8, as well as 6+2=8.

It's not just a collection of photos to put on social media like Instagram or Facebook. It's about the long-term and saoking up other cultures.

I grew up in Dakar, Senegal, then came to France when I left school, then did a M.A in Aix-en-Provence.

I got the chance to spend a year in India. It has an ancient culture. They have their own way of looking at the world. I think I was very lucky to have experienced that.

At Toulouse Business School, I was a Bouygues Construction apprentice.

After that, a Bouygues subsidiary, DTP, offered me a permanent post in Mali as a financial controller. I work in a multicultural team. It was very enriching, a real cultural melting pot.

Today, as an internal auditor, I analyse the risks activities mays face and recommend solutions. In my job, I liaise with various people, especially people abroad and I have to adapt to them and understand them to get as much information as possible.
