Je m'appelle Fidélis Onomo Mbassi, j'ai 17 ans et je viens d'effectuer un stage au pôle diplomatique de l'Élysée.
My name is Fidélis Onomo Mbassi, I'm 17 years old and I have just completed an internship at the diplomatic service of the Elysee.
Au club de Villetaneuse, j'avais participé à un camp de basket et à l'issue de ce camp, le coach nous dit que le mardi nous aurons la rencontre d'une personnalité.
At the Villetaneuse club, I had participated in a basketball camp and at the end of this camp, the coach tells us that on Tuesday we will meet a personality.
Donc on pensait tous ce que ça allait être par exemple Tony Parker ou Michael Jordan parce que c'était le basket.
So we all thought it was going to be Tony Parker or Michael Jordan because it was basketball.
Mais finalement on nous dit que c'était le président de la République.
But finally we are told that it was the President of the Republic.
Je me suis dit que je pourrais par exemple lui poser une question.
I thought that I could, for example, ask him a question.
À la fin du discours du président, le speaker avait demandé au public de faire..., de descendre pour qu'on ait un moment d'échange.
At the end of the president's speech, the speaker asked the audience to do ..., to go down so that we could have a moment of exchange.
Donc à ce moment- il y avait beaucoup de foule.
So at that moment there was a lot of crowd.
Finalement je l'interpelle, donc "Monsieur le Président".
Finally I call him, so "Mr. President".
Ensuite il se retourne vers moi et c'est que nous commençons notre échange.
Then he turns to me and that's where we start talking.
Donc je lui fais part de mes projets d'avenir et c'est comme ça qu'à la fin, il me propose d'effectuer un stage à l'Élysée.
So I tell him about my plans for the future and that's how in the end, he offers me to do an internship at the Élysée.
Donc à la suite de cet échange un de ses conseillers me donne une carte et il me demande de le recontacter par mail.
So following this discussion one of his advisers gives me a card and he asks me to get back to him by email.
Donc le lendemain je lui renvoie un mail et puis il me fait savoir que ma demande est en cours de procédure.
So the next day I send him an email and then he lets me know that my request is being processed.
C'était un stage de découverte, mais à ma grande surprise c'était différent des stages de 3ème par exemple, parce qu'on a aussi un stage de découverte en 3ème.
It was a discovery internship, but to my surprise it was different from the Year 10's internship for example, because we also have a discovery internship in Year 10.
Donc je m'attendais vraiment à être assez observateur, par exemple rester inactif.
So I was really expecting to be there as an observer, like staying inactive.
Sauf que j'ai eu la possibilité d'effectuer quand même quelques tâches.
Except that I nevertheless had the opportunity to perform some tasks.
Malgré que ce soit un environnement assez confidentiel, j'ai quand même pu par exemple effectuer des relevés d'informations sur certaines affaires et aussi assister à des réunions.
Although it is a fairly confidential environment, I still could for example do some information gathering on certain cases and also attend meetings.
Et à la suite de ces réunions j'ai par exemple rédiger des comptes rendus.
And following these meetings I had to write reports for example.
Cette semaine était assez chargée donc l'emploi du temps du président également.
That week was quite busy so the President's schedule was busy too.
Donc je n'ai pas exactement eu l'opportunité d'échanger avec lui.
So I did not exactly have the opportunity to talk to him.
Cependant je voulais quand même avoir une photo au moins le dernier jour avec le président.
However, I still wanted to have a photo at least on the last day with the president.
Donc juste avant qu'il rencontre le président Macky Sall, j'ai quand même pu prendre une photo avec le président.
So just before he met President Macky Sall, I was able to take a photo with the president.
