National team: France

Which player has most inspired you and why? Cristiano Ronaldo, for his ambition, his mental strength, the demands he makes of himself, his technical skills, his physical strength and his human character.

Which coach has most inspired you? Guy Ferrier

What was the best he's given you? Always have the will to win and win titles.

Best player you've played with? There have been a lot but I really like Lara Dickenmann.

Toughest opponent? Amandine Henry

What are your memories of your first club as a child? In my first club I used to play with the boys and they always gave me the best opponent to mark.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Believe in your dreams and play simply.

What was the experience of playing in a youth final tournament? I recall the sadness of the team after we lost in the Women's Under-17 [European championship final against Spain in 2012]. For the U-17 Women's World Cup and the Women's Under-19 [European Championship], I recall the determination and focus everybody had during the matches, then the satisfaction it brings.
