Augustin

When he isn’t sitting in Parisian Café discussing for hours about rugby with his old-time friends, Augustin enjoys spending his time watching old-time music performance from Jacques Brel and Pink Floyd. Born in the French capital but raised in Hong-Kong, Augustin is a true Asian-lover. During his high-schools years, he has spent some quality times drinking beers in bars, planning his futures in the beautiful Stanley area. Nostalgic of his precious motherland, Augustin decided to embark for social studies, firstly in Le Havre, then moving to the French capital.

True passionate of Asian cultures, Augustin spent six months in Mumbai interning in a consulting firm specialized in corporate social responsibility. As the first experience as an adult was a lot of constraints, he preferred to spend more time travelling around the country than sitting in front of his laptop, facing his professional responsibilities.

As a true “citizen of the world”, Augustin is passionate for new international experiences and challenges. He thus accepted arms wide open his cousin’s offer to run for the greatest experience of his young lifetime: driving through 19 countries and 15’000km to reach the the Mongolian border.

When he isn’t napping, Ben spends countless hours listening to Aznavour, Brel or Edith Piaf. His tremendous social skills enabled him to be the go-to man when it comes to triggering good times. Passionate about tennis, he puts a lot of energy in supporting his idol Gaël Monfils and the French national team at the Davis cup. Benji, or Boubou as his close relatives call him was raised in Lyon, where his family still lives. He is the heart and soul of this city, having Litt up the Stade Gerland of the Olympique Lyonnais in his early ages, and being a renowned cook.

His first destination after leaving his beloved parents was Milano, where he mostly learned how to make carbonara pasta without cream. Growing in confidence, he then left for Hong Kong for an internship before fleeing to his motherland Switzerland to start working in consulting.

Now aged 23, the mind full of dreams, he has the clear will to live life like there’s no tomorrow. Following his role-model Harvey Specter’s vision of life, Benjam doesn’t have dreams, he has goals. Competing the Mongol rally is now closer to reality than a child’s deepest fantasy.
