For three years, she worked with the Association Burkinabè pour le Bien-Etre Familial (ABBEF) as a peer educator.

She then worked for two years for private companies in France and Burkina Faso as a sales agent. These experiences allowed her to develop strong management skills and accustomed her to sales and business techniques. In 2019, Bertille won the first regional and national prize in the national debate and public speaking competition "Harmonies Citoyennes". When she is not in class, Bertille is reading, writing or making new friends. Passionate about new experiences, her motto is "live life to the full, learn every day, be bold, humble and free". Bertille's dream is to one day be the kind of woman who inspires younger generations to excel and reach their full potential.
