As she enters the equivalent of her senior year in high school, Inés is considering a career in journalism, and shared her impressions of the Emerald Coastand Americawith us.


I decided to come to the USA to improve my English after I passed my oral English exams in France. I was very bad in English; I think worse than me does not exist!

I arrived in the USA on July 2. I went to Crab Island, in Destin for the Fourth of July. It was crazy! And really different from France. This is a very nice place: this white water and all the boats.

In France, the national party is on July 14, and we haven't a Crab Island; we have just beautiful fireworks at night.
