"Born in Paris, I grew up in Rome and did all my schooling at the Institut Saint-Dominique, which gave me the safety, spiritual comfort and confidence to develop my well-being. This school helped me to develop a strong personality that allowed me to build a successful career as an entrepreneur and pearl specialist in Lebanon, my native country, while remaining humble and respectful. The school also has a beautiful approach to nature, I will never forget those vast courtyards and gardens. Not to mention the wonderfully healthy canteen with excellent variety."Sabine Mazloum blogger on healthy food, well-being & environmental issues, author
