Lou explained that she is very determined to win the title of Miss France 2021 and make everyone proud and will give her best of herself at the competition. She stated, “I am a very determined person who perseveres in everything I do.”  After winning the crown, she expressed her happiness as, “I don't realize at all. I'm a bit shocked. I didn't really expect it. I cried a lot before the election to empty my emotions and there, suddenly, I have this shock. But I am very, very happy and I hope to go as far as possible in the Miss France adventure. It will be a preparation; I will see how things are presented to me. I will already realize that I am Miss Bourgogne. I am very happy, but a little shocked.”

Miss Bourgogne 2019 Sophie Diry who was adjudged as the third runner-up at Miss France 2020, stated, “I advise her to live this adventure to the full, because it goes very, very quickly and to make the most of it.” Lou is very excited and thrilled to take over the crown duties and prepare for the finale which is scheduled to be held on 12th December 2020. Marine who is a keen supporter of her sister had also mentioned that she has evolved a lot and she shined like a star she is on stage. She is strong, beautiful, and determined to win the title for the province and Lou strongly feels that beauty pageants are a great way for young women to express their opinions and advocacies across the world.
