Hella Grichi

Hella is a 23-year old English student based in Tunis who obtained her bachelor in English Culture, Civilization and Language in June 2014. She grew up in Germany and returned to Tunisia in 2005. After earning her baccalaureate in Computer Science, she switched careers and decided to pursue a passion of hers: English. This passion has goaded her on through the years leading me to all kinds of activities revolving around one of my favourite languages, including debating. In 2014, she became co-founder of Aspire to Inspire, an initiative that organized the first English Slam Poetry event in Tunisia in April 2014. One of her greatest honours was winning the Boxing Days Debate Competition 2014 with the Ecole Normale Superieure team and winning 4th-best debater.

She is currently an agr├ęgation student at ENS and working on completing her first novel.
