However, Chimène Badi has awareness of one’s limitations, a rare strength that encouraged her to think carefully about this decision. To Closer, she continues: “But I’m just beginning to feel solid.

This choice also allowed him to devote himself to another pillar in his life, his love for music. “I found meaning elsewhere than in motherhood. It is an immense pleasure to pursue my career, to publicize important causes, but also to leave the light to spend time with my loved ones…”.
