Ambre New Caledonia

“My name is Ambre. I have so many good memories at EU. First, I've learned really fast with passionate teachers in a convivial and fun atmosphere. The most important is that you feel safe because this school cares about everyone, I was comfortable with this new adventure in a totally new country. Secondly, I’ve met gorgeous people from around the world. At the end of that amazing experience I could reach my professional goals: be a flight attendant. I want to say merci EU for everything.”
