Annick Metefia

2017/18 Fellow

Born in France, Annick quickly found interest in bringing to light the experiences of teenagers, especially those coming from immigrant families and experiencing discrimination. While studying anthropology in Paris, she also worked as a counsellor in different schools, and later in many community centres, conducting workshops about racism, sexism and homophobia. Passionate about public-speaking, she specialised in creating educational content on these issues adapted to a young audience. Her more recent professional experience at France terre d’asile, France’s largest support organisation for refugees, allowed her to assist social workers by providing them with legal support and creating partnerships to facilitate the integration of refugees. Annick now wants to explore working with young people in a culturally and socially different environment.

She’s passionate about literature, visual arts and poetry, and dreams of writing a documentary one day telling the story of the African side of her family.
