Paperwork by Soumiya
Back in Oct 18, a young Swiss woman named Soumiya posted a request for folks to be interviewed for her major paper required to graduate from their equivalent of high school.
Apparently she only had about 14 take her up on the request, I am one of those volunteers.
Today she sent me a copy of her paper - all 41 pages that she had permission from the interviewees to share.
This young woman is not a native Swiss citizen, so none of the three languages spoken in Switzerland is her birth language. She wrote to me in English - EXCELLENT English, as a MOF - and wrote her paper in French (my capability in French is limited to very few words - lieutenant, colonel, alarm, introduction, etc.) . Courtesy of Google, I was able to read a goodly portion of her paper tonight.
She did a superb job & received maximun marks for her effort . Were I to have graded it, I would have likewise given her top marks. Those who did not participate missed a golden opportunity to help a young woman do a superb piece of work - and maybe even get quoted! (At least three of us did!)
Warning to the French Academy in Paris: DO NOT read her paper - you will have an apoplectic fit & wind up in horrible twitching, writhiing & spasming on the floor. "Le Pacemaker " is now interchangable with "Le Cardiaque Stimulateur." At least she did not refer to "Le Drugstore."
