About

Anne Sengès

Anne was based in San Francisco for the past few years and now lives in Washington, D.C where she works as a communications strategist for the World Bank. She first discovered the U.S. in the summer of 1991, while a student at the University of Paris, when she landed a summer job at New York’s most beloved symbol: the Statue of Liberty. She ended up settling in San Francisco where she received a Master of Art in Journalism from UC Berkeley. Anne became a foreign correspondent and her stories, ranging from post-war Lebanon to Hong Kong’s economic downturn to the daily life of Muslim women in New York in the aftermath of 9/11, were published in a number of French and international publications. From San Francisco, she chronicled the birth and death of the dotcom phenomenon. She also covered the Michael Jackson’s trial and the war on foie-gras in California for French TV. Her book "Eco Tech: moteurs de la croissance verte en Californie et en France" on the clean tech revolution in California and in France was published in November 2009. Her first book Ethnik: le marketing de la différence (published in 2003), examined the face of a Latino-Black-Asian America through the rise of commercial multiculturalism.
