She then overcomes the obstacles one by one to reach her goal. Patrol leader at 29, then squadron commander, she was chosen by her peers in 2008, at only 31, to join the ranks of the Patrouille de France; she then became the first woman to join this prestigious unit. A year later, she took command and thus became the first woman in the world, and still the only one to this day, to have led a national acrobatic patrol.
