About PARIS BY EMYAbout Emy

Bonjour ! My name is Emelyne Bonnes – www.linkedin.com/in/emelynebonnes

Emy is my American nickname. I lived 5 years in the United States of America, Midwest in my twenties (study, graduate and work).

Nowadays, I do what I love the most :

  • To enjoy Paris, the City of Lights, capital city of France
  • To experience sharing thoughts, cultures and lifestyles
  • To create genuine social links worldwide with humanness

With a Sorbonne Business School master’s degree (2 master’s degrees actually, one in business research, and one in sales & marketing, 2 bachelor’s degrees one in France communication major, one in the US business major marketing) and a corporate background of 15 years in SMB-industrial group, I became an entrepreneur in 2018 after 8 months in incubator.


How did I get the idea to create PARIS BY EMY ?

Loving Paris and inter-cultural exchanges, I have decided to create PARIS BY EMY, a company dedicated to planning bespoke vacation packages with private tours and personalized services according to each client’s interests and preferences. Born in the French Alps, with 5 years’ experience during my twenties in the United States of America – Midwest, I have lived in Paris since 2005.

Having friends from the US visiting (me in) Paris, I had this idea of PARIS BY EMY

In the United States of America, I was strongly involved in multicultural communities of locals, international students, expatriates’ organizations such as the French American Chamber of Commerce and Procter & Gamble international community, both in Cincinnati. I was immersed for 5 years in a multitude of cultures, religions, nationalities in respect, dialogue and peace; we were all united to share an experience in the United States by living, studying and working hard there. Even today, this experience and those friendships are still alive.

In my civilization, he who differs from me, far from harming me, enriches me. Our unity above us is based on man.” Flight to Arras (French: Pilote de guerre) by French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince author

In addition to living 5 years in the US, I travelled to many corners of the world, such as Europe, Africa & the Middle East. The discovery of cultural diversity associated with reciprocal exchanges, based on dialogue, mutual respect and the concern to preserve each person’s cultural identity is often an enriching experience. These meetings with the other are also an opportunity to reflect on oneself and on the world.

About Emily in Paris and Paris by Emy

Many asked me if I chose the name of my company because of Emily in Paris. Absolutely NOT! I created my company late October 2017 while I started to think of the name in 2016 during my incubator stage. Actually, Emily copies me! I am in marketing, lived 5 years in the Midwest and in Paris since 2005. So Emily have a private tour about Paris by Emy !

I am very happy to live from what I love the most, at last. Being an entrepreneur is a great adventure as well, lots of challenges but so much freedom and joy. I want to thank all my American friends, I also have great inspirations from Madonna, and merci to all the people who supported me with caring and positivity. I would like to thank all my business partners in Paris as well to make my dream possible and who are doing an excellent job. A very very very special MERCI to my clients who have been so kind, fabulous and gave me great ideas to developp my business. And above all, I want to thank God.

About Amelie Poulain and Paris by Emy

I had the great honor of being interviewed as Emelyne Bonnes Tour Guide by David Chazan, journalist at the Times Magazine London, regarding my fabulous Amélie Poulain’s movie tour and its re-programming in cinemas throughout France, with English subtitles during of the opening of the 2024 Olympic Games.

Amélie Poulain (2001 movie), Madonna of the unloved, godmother of the neglected, guardian angel, little bird fallen from the nest, Amélie has a lot of imagination and the idealism of a child.

Sharing my Faith

Called by God like a bolt of lightning in May 2016 and baptized Catholic in April 2017, I am really into sharing my Faith with Christians, believers from other religions, people who are searching for spirituality as well. Spirituality takes a big space in my life. The same year I started my catechumenate, I started in an incubator my business project. I have got Him under my skin and it is ALWAYS a great pleasure to share my spirituality with my clients  :

My godmother is a transgender woman, she is American and it is a blessing to have her in my life since 1996. Another beautiful blessing comes from the Church of France – the Diocese of Paris, bishops, priests, and a wonderful nun, sister Thérèse-Agnès. They have supported me for years in my will to have a transgender godmother for my baptism who was refused in 2016 as a godmother because she is a transgender woman.

The Church of France – Paris welcomed her/she officially as my godmother in 2023 after 7 years of spiritual fights, mostly against cold hearted religious priests, leading by hate, judgement, discrimination, exclusion and spiritual violence.

1 John 4:7-8  7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Read about LGBT rights within France. My godmother’s father Ed (in a chair on the left picture) passed the night of Ascension Thursday 2024 and I am very happy that Ed, her father, had been able to see his child becoming my godmother as a child of God, like all of us. God created us and God loves all His children, as they ARE, with an unbreakable bond.

The 4Cs of Sustainability – Consumption, Conservation, Community, and Cooperation – are the cornerstones of responsible and eco-friendly living. The City of Paris is developing public policies around solidarity, economic development, the preservation of the environment, biodiversity, the circular economy, the development of each individual, social cohesion and solidarity between territories and generations, as well as responsible production and consumption methods.

  • The Human at the Center : Genuine Proactive Exchange

All my private tours are unique, with real human exchanges providing social links. There are no platforms, no already-made tours. Platforms with AI should not desecrate the work of a person, of a company, an organization capable of creating rich human values for every individual and providing the whole society : employment, growth & social well-being. AI shall serve the entire society.

In addition, no algorithm should decide for you, impose a way of thinking, living and certainly not giving pressure for sur-consumption and compulsive buy. Stephen Hawking expressed his concern during a Web Summit in 2017. He cautioned the human race to be well-prepared to tackle the after-effects of AI.

  • No Modern Slavery and Labor Exploitation

Labour exploitation is the abuse of people in the workplace for profit. The abuse can be direct and brutal or much less obvious. People are exploited in many different ways, including:

    • Having wages and paperwork being controlled by another person
    • Being forced to work long hours without breaks
    • Being subjected to poor workplace health and safety
    • Having their liberty, rights restricted in obvious or more subtle ways…

We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We expect the same high standards from all of business partners : To respect each individual, clients and providers and to provide excellent services.
