The InternationalStudent.com Travel Video Contest Winners Announced

November 24th, 2015 by Jonathan Frankel

IEFA blogEach year InternationalStudent.com hosts a Travel Video Contest for students from around the world. Like years in the past this year, this year the contest contained numerous impressive videos from students in a multitude of countries. Although each video was impressive and expressed just how much determination each of the contestants possess, only three winners were able to be chosen. After careful consideration, the InternationalStudent.com Travel Video Contest judges were able to name the winners, and here they are:

Grand Prize Winner ($4,000) – “My Second Chance at Life” by Amar Chaniago 
“I was an introvert and I had never been outside my country to travel the world. But everything changed after I learned from my experience when I was dying and lost my friend. I began to work and save my money to travel. I have been travelling around Southeast Asia and Europe. However, traveling abroad seems not enough accomplishment for me, so I want something more which is study abroad to pursue my passion in psychology.”

2nd Prize Winner ($500) – “Place Yourself Where You Want To Be” by Michelle Leclercq 
“What does it take to be happy? My life experiences made me realise the potential people have when they really want something. We have one life, and my goal is to do something that will make me happy I want to inspire people, through music. This is my story”

3rd Prize Winner ($250) – “The Missing Piece” by Léa Kriger-Bécourt 
“Since I left France to study abroad, all I want is to discover different cultures to better understand our world. And I would like to visit people more than places. That’s why my video illustrates through this puzzle my project to go on an adventure in Mexico! Help me to experience a life in a biological community farm. You are the missing piece!”

Congratulations to each of the Travel Video Contest entrants, finalists and winners.
