Born 30 August 1968 at Saint-Denis on the Island of Réunion, Catherine Boudet, is a sociologist, journalist and poet.
Having taught at the University on the Island of Reunion, she moved to the Island of Mauritius, where she works as a journalist, dedicated to helping define an identity for the Island.
Catherine Boudet has written three books of poetry, Résîliences (L'Harmattan, 2007), Le Barattage de la mer de lait (Ndze, 2009) and Nos éparses nos sulfureuses, préfacé par Ananda Devi (Acoria, 2010).

Poetry has been her tool for destroying these myths.
