Bon Jour!

Hi everyone ! My name is Anne-Laure.

I really wanted to introduce myself to all readers of this blog, whether you are avid customers of OttLite products, or eager to know more about our team and products.

I just entered the company as an intern on the 1st of October and am already thrilled by the amazing working atmosphere here !

I am a French junior student from Sciences-Po Paris (Institute of Political Sciences). We have to spend our 3rd year abroad either studying in a university or doing an internship, wherever we want.

I love the States (though I miss French bread and cheese), and everyone at the company is welcoming and friendly. What’s more, I’m going to learn lots of interesting stuff as I will be working in departments (Marketing, communication, International) in which I may want to work later.

It was some of the most brutal fighting of World War II, and you sure get an appreciation for our Freedom (and that of Europe) when you read what these 18 to 22 year old guys did (and how some lived and some died). Tragic but spellbinding!"
