Meet our CEO, Cristel !

By 22 July 2018Non classé

I was raised in the Paris area in France. I have a scientific background. After I graduated, I went to Guadeloupe in the Caribbean, where I come from.

My daughter was born 8 years ago, that’s when I’ve noticed that French children’s literature does not integrate black models. So I decided to explore the anglophone market, as there are more representations, and to propose translations of books for black children into French. In order to distribute these books in the French area, I chose to create my own publishing house.

Welcome to ROOTS EDITIONS.

My mission is to help our children (and their parants !) gain self-esteem, self-confidence, learn about their history, recognize their infinite capabilities. AND TO MAKE THEM READ AGAIN.

My love for reading, my desire for change and my appreciation for my value and my roots made me start my business. A combination of passion and faith, despite of my introversion and some life challenges, such as a disease and single parenting.

Gratefulness allows me to keep pursuing my mission.

I really hope my journey will inspire at least one person 😉
