Gemma Eintou Moreau YLA

Gemma Eintou MOREAU, a 35-year-old Dominican French-English Translator and Teacher has been selected from more than 1,800 applicants from 37 countries as a Finalist for the 2023 Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) Fellowship Program

This prestigious fellowship program, funded by the United States Department of State, brings together 280 of the most outstanding entrepreneurs and business leaders from across the Western Hemisphere for an intensive entrepreneurial leadership development program that includes an online entrepreneurial leadership curriculum, a four-week professional placement with a U.S. host organization, and a Closing Forum held in Washington D.C.

As such, for the past four weeks, Eintou Moreau has been placed with the Alliance Française de Chicago where she has been working on a special project to find a solution for Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) for all their cultural events. Moreau’s background as a French-English Translator, as well as her experience at the Alliance Française de la Dominique provided a unique brand of expertise to the Chicago YLAI placement hosts.

Moreau expresses that she is extremely proud of her work during this YLAI experience. Thanks to her diligent research and recommendations, AF Chicago will be the first Alliance in the United States to implement live interpretation for all their cultural events – and others are sure to follow. Moreau also had the opportunity to present her findings to the Federation of Alliances Françaises in the USA, convincing them to consider funding the AF Chicago RSI initiative. 

On Wednesday, June 8, Eintou was named as one of the top 10 Solution Pitch finalists of the 2023 YLAI cohort!  As one of the top 10 finalists she will present her business Solution pitch live at Closing Forum. This will take place on Tuesday, June 13th at 11:00 am in Washington DC.

Eintou owns a boutique translation business called “Transacctpro” in Eggleston; and teaches French and English Literature at Wesley High School in Dominica. She says, “I’m so proud to represent us all and I can’t wait to continue promoting the French language and culture in Dominica!”
