flaviaAn Argentinian entrepreneur integrated into French culture

As a recipient of a scholarship of excellence, Flavia Ferrari Inchauspe has had the opportunity to study in France before creating a fashion accessories company in Argentina. She now presides the society of French high schools former students all over the world.

A career of excellence from Buenos Aires to Paris

Flavia Ferrari Inchauspe studied in the Franco-Argentinian high school Jean Mermoz, in Buenos Aires. Having been granted a scholarship through the Excellence-Major program of the AEFE (Agency for French higher education abroad), she was able to go to France to study in a "classe préparatoire" of literature in Paris. Then, she chose to make her dream come true by studying in La Sorbonne. "Thanks to my studies, I was able to develop a subtle mastery of French language and a real diversity of fields of study more than 11,000 km from home. My goal was excellence."

Then, she studied in Sciences Po Paris. Her business project was selected to join the school “incubator”. The aim was to give an international aspect to the fashion accessories company she had launched in Argentina before coming to France. Today, the family-born "Las Penelope" is exported to the US and Japan.

A French network with multiple root points

In 2013, she is elected at the head of the society of former students of French high schools in the world (ALFM). The members of this international network share common values gained with French education. They build up their identity as much as the culture of their country of origin. Students’ sponsorship or contacts between former students strengthen the personal, academic or professional links without any obstacles.

The president of the AFLM is the perfect representation of a generation fed with various cultures, who evolves in a globalized framework: "We are proud and aware of our origins. Our roots are no longer an obstacle but an asset for our deployment in the world."
