Jeunes Ambassadeurs program
Andrea, an international student at ESDES, was a finalist of the “Trophée Citoyen” of the Jeunes Ambassadeurs program. This program contributes to the international promotion of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region through the reception of foreign students.
“My experience in the Jeunes Ambassadeurs Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes program, as international student in ESDES, has been awesome! Not only because of the number of activities that have been organized to well know the region, but also of the creation of a project with the help of my coach, Christine Reverchon-Masclet, during these eight months. A project that has already started inside the walls of ESDES: a team of first year students are now working hard to persuade some public institutions from Lyon to make their web pages accessible (adapted to people that suffer from any visual, auditory or cognitive disability); with the collaboration of the association Javacoya (ASPAYM Castilla y León) from Valladolid. That is the beautiful thing of the experience: connecting my home town, Valladolid, with Lyon to create a social project that has resulted finalist of the “Trophée Citoyen” of the program.
I want to thank ESDES for giving me the opportunity to participate in this project, improving my French and meeting new people from various parts of the world with different perspectives from whom I have learned many important things to grow as a person”.
Congratulations! We are so proud!
