Corinne Cahen, October 2014.

Corinne Cahen has been Minister of Family and Integration and the Greater Region in the government Bettel-Schneider since December 4, 2013.[1]

She was born on May 16, 1973 in Luxembourg City, and grew up in Bonnevoie, a town quarter next to the central train station. After her high school graduation, she left for France to study translation, business, and journalism. She then worked as a journalist for the AFP and Radio France Internationale, which included a spell as a White House correspondent in Washington, DC. After her return to Luxembourg, she worked for Eldoradio and RTL Radio Lëtzebuerg and for her family's shoe retail business.

Before entering politics, she was a business woman managing her family's shoe shops in Luxembourg-City and was active as president for the retail business association of Luxembourg-City from 2008 to 2012.

She only entered politics in 2013, and managed to get directly elected to Parliament in the October 20th 2013 elections, but only briefly took up the post as she was made a minister.[2][3]
