I am Elora, a 20 years old student coming from the University of Strasbourg in France. I am doing an internship in EC London in order to finish my Applied Foreign Languages degree and after many struggles and hesitations, I am well settled and ready to begin a new life in London!
My boyfriend is also coming with me and will work at the Apple Store of Brent Cross, starting in the middle of May. Since he must end his job contract in France at first, I managed to find a flat alone in Hendon, for us and our pet rats. This was quite difficult since the rental apartment market is crazy in London! But in 4 days of viewings, I found a nice and cosy flat in a residential neighbourhood.
Before coming in London, I studied English and Japanese languages in Strasbourg and did several students jobs in restaurants or as a babysitter. Last summer, I also travelled to Japan alone and it was my first trip outside of Europe. It was also the best trip I ever did. I met a lot of people and went to a lot of places both in cities and in the countryside of the country. This is at this moment that I decided to live in another country than France because I wanted to discover the world. So, since the United Kingdom is not too far away from France, my boyfriend and I decided to go to London in order to become bilingual and start a new life abroad.
So far, I love working at EC London It is a place where I can meet a lot of people from different areas of the world and all the staff is amazing. I am here for 5 months and I look forward to learn more about the school and the city!
