Axel, the speedy dunker
At 27, I’m a pro basketball player driven by the desire to push myself beyond my limits and become the best version of myself. A music lover and a great fan of juices and smoothies for their benefits to my health and vitality, I constantly seek to combine sports performance and well-being. Yet my mission goes beyond the court: I am determined to build a school in Haiti, my country of origin, to give young people the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Through my sport, my music and my projects, I want to inspire each person to draw from within themselves the strength to do better and to grow.
« Lausanne, for me, is the perfect balance between the hustle and bustle of city life and a leisurely lifestyle. Nestled on the shores of Lake Geneva, the city offers every day an unbelievable panorama, in which the blue of the lake blends in with the Alpine summits. I truly feel at home here, in this vibrant and dynamic metropolis that is also the lifeblood of the canton of Vaud. In the summer, Lausanne becomes a playing field for amateurs of art, music, sports and culture. I love to immerse myself in it, sometimes as a player, sometimes as a spectator, always surprised by the diversity of experiences it offers. However, Lausanne is also those quiet spots where I recharge my batteries, whether by strolling on the Ouchy quays or the Vidy beaches, while admiring the botanical gardens or enjoying Lake Geneva. In short, it’s much more than a city, it’s a source of inspiration and a true ode to life. »
