Anna Moine


I was only 16 when I started college. I applied to Emory University because it was in a major city and my parents would not let me move to New York City.
I have so many memories of growing up in Paris, but also throughout my lifetime since I am fortunate enough to return there almost every year.

“I have so many memories of growing up in Paris, but also throughout my lifetime since I am fortunate enough to return there almost every year. What I most appreciate of my hometown is the sheer beauty of it and the juxtaposition between old and new.  Whether it is architecture, art, fashion, food, general culture – Paris offers a wealth of possibilities and choices.  

One of my most treasured memories is doing school portraits at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. I later applied to Emory University because it was in a major city and being from Paris, I needed the energy and vitality that a large city has. I was only 16 when I started college. My parents would not let me move to New York City, so it was a compromise.  

I accelerated my degree so that I completed it in 3 ½ years. Emory did offer me some incredible educational opportunities, namely working with President Jimmy Carter and Ken Stein (who drafted the original peace accord with Anwar Sadat).  I specialized in Middle Eastern studies and politics which could have become my career path, however, I diverted to cosmetics. That shows that you can follow your intellectual passions while still building a parallel and successful career in another field!”
