In this recording hear Audrey along with two other Slideshow women, Sabrina Dorsainvil and Clarissa Lynn Robertson talk with artist Elisa H. Hamilton about the experience of documenting their lives, creating the slide talks, being vulnerable, and helping to create a piece of public art.
Originally from France, Audrey moved to the U.S. with her mother and sister in 1994. Since living in the U.S., she has made the greater Boston area her home going to high school on the north shore, college at Wheaton in Norton, MA and graduate school in Boston. She credits the balancing of two worlds from a young age for her global thirst and desire to interact with and understand the world's diverse cultures. Stung by the travel bug early in life, Audrey has had the privilege of traveling and studying abroad. In 2003, she traveled to Nicaragua where she met her now husband, Axel. A few, long years later, life brought them together in the US, where they have since married, pursued their careers, bought a home and are now raising two loving and adventurous children ages 4 and 1.
Audrey works as an immigration attorney at Ramirez & Kain, LLP where she, her law partner and a paralegal provide legal services to immigrants and their families. She is impassioned by her clients and driven to help them along their journey to security and stability in the US.
As passionate as she is about her work, no love trumps the one she feels for her children and family. She marvels at her children, Camille and Lorenzo's development and growth, and hopes to raise global and engaged citizens.
What wisdom do you want to pass on to others?
Practice kindness and acceptance; be open and curious.
I feel most powerful when...
I have helped someone.
The person who knows me best is...
My husband and my mother are tied.
I am proud of my city when...
It is inclusive, welcoming and easy to navigate.
If I could change anything in the world it would be...
It's nearly impossible to pick one thing. Today I'd like to see an end to violence: no more guns, abuse against the defenseless (women, children, elderly), and gangs.
