My name is Titouan, I’m 22 years old and I live in Paris, France. I grew up with sport around me since I can’t remember, first as a handball player, and then as a coach and a referee in various other physical activities. I graduated last year in both sport management and physical education in France. These studies abled me to develop my knowledge on the benefits of physical activities and taught me how to use it to contribute to bigger goals, and on the side to be committed to defend youth rights and promote sport at local, national and european scale. In these matters, appart from being a committee member of ENGSO Youth, I am currently working for the national organization representing student in the field of sport (ANESTAPS) as general vice-president and am the representative of the French Youth Council (CNAJEP) for the European Youth Forum. The main topics I am focusing on are education, employability and inclusion.
