Isabelle - "I Can Do It"
Isabelle is of Sino-Laotian origin. The youngest of a family of four children, Isabelle is the only one among her siblings to have been born in France and to have been given a French name.

She credits much of her current success as a psychologist to the diversity of her former neighbourhood. To read more about Isabelle and her family's uplifting story.
