Bonjour! My name is Jacques Ducoté and I’m 13 years old. I live in Avignon, France a historic town with lots of parks and gardens. My dad runs a small café and mom’s make the yummy cookies and cakes. Every year, the town throws a big arts and music festival that brings visitors from all over the world. I like to entertain everyone with my juggling skills and magic tricks. “Watch closely.” That’s why I carry these balls around so I can practice. After meeting so many great people at the Avignon Festival, I decided to travel the world and learn more about other places and make new friends.
