The story of Vaishnavi, a brilliant student from Kalyan, Maharashtra, has won hearts of French people thanks to her recent interview on TVBreizh show. “I had not come to France with the intention of settling down here, like I knew I wanted to live here for a few years. But today I think that looking at the culture, the lifestyle, everything, I love France. Like, I feel it’s very close to my heart, not because I stayed here, but because it accepted me, and it made me feel very special. Now if anybody asks me, where do you come from? I say India, but If I say, where do you live? I say France is my home.”

A great ambassador to the French audience, Vaishnavi has finished a 2-year Double Degree programme called Master in Management /MSc in International Finance in Rennes School of Business. She was in the middle of her final year internship in Finance for a French company when she responded to the interview request from the media.
