Louis Dayen

Junior at EIB high school
Hello my name is Louis Dayen, I am 16 years old and a french student in EIB (international school). I used to live in Paris my whole life, except in 2018, because i spent one year abroad, in South of England (Devon), in a boarding school, and that’s what I wanna talk about during my TED’s speech. I am a very curious person, and I love to challenge myself with huge project such as this one. As a very open minded person, I have no issue to speak in front of a public. In fact, I already did that in England in front of 100 people and that was, of course stressful, but also a very nice experiment to improve my oral skills. It would be important for me to introduce you : How a Boarding School changed my life and my behaviour.
