Sport Specific Information

When and where did you begin this sport? She began fencing at age six. She joined the Tunis Air Club in Tunisia at age 10.
Why this sport? She was born into a sporting family. Her mother was a pioneering fencer in Tunisia and influenced her decision to take up the sport. Her father was a basketball player and also a member of the Tunisian Fencing Federation [FTE]. "In the beginning every time someone gave me a foil to train with, I would find myself putting it to one side and picking up a sabre instead. I found this was much more attractive and spectacular."
Club / Team US Metro de Paris: France
