CEA CAPA Directory
French Riviera, France
Matthew Louis, CEA MOJO Videographer
Why did you choose to study/intern abroad?
I decided to study abroad to reinvent myself. Put myself in a situation where I come back as a better-versed person. Where I can face all of my challenges alone and prove to myself how much I can accomplish on my own. At first, I was scared and alone but I'm starting to realize becoming independent isn't such a bad thing. It'll make you stronger in the end.
Why did you choose your study/intern city?
I decided to go to the French Riveria because I wanted something completely opposite to what I'm used to. Antibes is the complete opposite of NYC. It's less work and more about enjoying life. It's a laid-back lifestyle to remind you that sometimes you have to remember to live a little.
What are you most looking forward to during your abroad experience?
I'm looking forward to learning the french culture and immersing myself in the language. I've only known English all my life; coming back with the french language and culture will build depth in my character.
Fun Fact (hobbies, interests, accomplishment, etc.)?
I love to make music. I love to be adventurous. I love to understand people!
