C O Q U I N E / “an impudent or immoral girl or woman”
WHO ARE YOU ANDREA?
I’m 22 , Californian living under the eternal sunshine, near the breeze of the ocean. Munching out on açai bowls and drinking pressed juices. Currently studying languages mainly focusing on the French language and going for a Dr. in Marine Biology.
WHAT DO LANGUAGES HAD TO DO WITH MARINE BIOLOGY?
You might ask yourself why choose two both different paths but believe it or not languages come on handy . Imagine if I want to move to France and do my life there working as a Marine Biologist then I would get to use my french don’t you think so? 😉
WHERE DO THE NAME CAME FROM?
COQUINE is pronounced “KO-KIN”, It’s a French word which means “an impudent or immoral girl or woman”. I choose it because my ex french boyfriend used to playfully called me that, even though in France it totally has an offensive meaning for girls for me is just a playful cheeky term. It makes me feel like “Lolita from Vladimir Navokok’s book“. Or “Lolitah from Lana Del Rey’s song”.
