ISA High School Featured Blogger: Léa Payette

My name is Léa Payette and I am from Rosemount, Minnesota. This past year my cheerleading team traveled to Florida to compete in Nationals against other high schools from around the country. When cheer isn’t in season I run hurdles in track and compete in a business simulation program called DECA. My family is French Canadian and I grew up speaking French. Because I have lived in America since I was born I always went to school in English, I never learned to write in French and obviously that grew to be a slight problem because it felt like I didn’t really fully know my native language. I chose to go to Aix-en Provence in France this summer to become grammatically educated in the French language as well as culturally immersed. Other than being the experience of a lifetime, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to discover if France really is like in the movies and I will have a baguette in my hand at all times.
