Who are Griottes Polyglottes?
Ingrid BROUSSILLON - Founder
Once upon a time, a baby girl was born in Guadeloupe, a French island far far away in the Caribbean.
While growing up she loved listening to storytelling or she would read the same tales over and over.
But tales and storytelling would not make her a living (at least it was what she has been told).
Then she moved to France to complete her studies in Business Management, got a job and started to live an adult life.
But something was missing, and she knew it was the joy that she used to find in the books she read or the storytelling she listened to.
As soon as she could she took acting storytelling classes alongside her day job.
In 2016 she decided that she wanted to be fluent in English, therefore she moved to Vancouver.
But being there she realized that Vancouverites would love to speak French, while she would love to speak English herself.
She realized as well that due to her accent, it would be very difficult for her to pursue her acting storytelling passion.
But she decided she would overcome this obstacle and create her own opportunities.
Late 2018 she created Griottes Polyglottes a business where adults and kids can master French by using their entire body and emotions.
Her dream is to provide a place for everyone to speak several languages while having fun and being creative.
