En français:

Anita est née à Berne, a vécu à Genève, Taiwan et aux îles Galapagos et a été vue la dernière fois à vélo aux alentours de Cambridge en compagnie de son mari, de ses trois enfants, et, à l’occasion, d’un petit lapin tout blanc.

Elle travaille en partenariat avec l’Alliance Française de Cambridge.
