“I liked this movie because it is about the earth and the environment. The story is a good story about love at the same time. I think that the most memorable part of the movie is when the tree fell. I cried at this moment. I think that at this moment in our world, people actually do this. All governments in all countries do this. It is a beautiful movie.” -Valerie, EC Internship Student
A few weeks ago, EC student, Kridkajorn S., came to school with cornrows. Cornrows are a traditional West African style of hair grooming where the hair is braided very close to the scalp, using an underhand, upward motion to produce a continuous, raised row. Unfortunately, they did not last very long, but he is intent on getting them done again. He even asked EC staff member, Lykai, to give it a try. Check out the pictures below.
Kridkajorn smiles for the camera as Lykai attempts cornrows.

EC San Diego celebrated Cinco de Mayo in style. The reception area exploded with festive colors and music. At lunch, students fiested on Mexican cuisine catered by Mr. Taco. Lunch was followed by an extremely famous Mexican tradition, the breaking of a pinata. A pinata is a brightly-colored decoration made of papier-mache and filled with treats. It is broken by a blind-folded person who hits it forcefully in order to have the candies spill out for everybody to enjoy. Check out the photos below!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!!
