Introducing ECLA’s Student Services Counselor, Cyril Pascarel

“I am THE person you want to talk to if you need any information about Los Angeles!

Before moving to the City of Angels, I lived in Toulouse, France my whole life where I graduated from my business school with a general business major. A few months later, I decided to experience a new life studying ESL in Southern California at first, then studied International Trade and Commerce + Japanese on the UCLA campus.
The variety of choices that this place offers definitely suits me the best than anywhere else! When you come live or study in L.A. you get to experience the amazing california sunshine all year long, meet people from all around the world, eat so many different type of foods (yes I am a foodie!) and so on! I forgot to mention, I LOVE MUSIC! I have been a Dj since 2002 and being here allows me to go meet the best artists performing live in front of my eyes… What else can you ask for?! Back in France I was really involved in the Djing movement that I ended up winning the French Dj Championship 2006/2007 in the scratch/turntablism category! Competitiveness is definitely one of my main asset as I always want to do my best so people around me can benefit something out of it. Besides that, I can say that traveling remains my hobby number 1. I got to travel to more than 10 countries within the past 6 years and I am still asking for it. My loves for it comes from the eager to learn about different cultures, languages, food, history etc… I guess that would be the reason why today I am able to communicate in French, English, Spanish and some Japanese! I think you can get my point here when I say that EC is the most suitable place i could have ever asked for because of its energy, international environment and an amazing staff! ECLA has the opportunity to offers students the best location to study considering that it’s located in the heart of Santa Monica just a few blocks away from the ocean… UNBEATABLE!

Current and future students, I am blessed to be able to experience this together and I feel just great to make you feel the way I do about this place every day. I am looking forward to help and get to know more about you at ECLA.
