Jimmy Barriere was born and raised in Corsica France. He is studying to be an air controller back home, which is the person who regulates plane landings and take offs. This field requires Intensive studies, so he has been enjoying his freedom! When he returns back home he will be starting school again. So while he is in Santa Barbara he plans on relaxing, making friends, and Exploring California. We connected with Jimmy to learn a little more about him.
I was born in Corsica, which is south of France. I Later moved to France, and began studying to be a air controller.
I regulate the landings and take offs.
I love playing sports, primarily soccer! I also have been playing guitar for nine years and am started learning to play drums.
I can play guitar behind my back with my eyes closed hahaha.
One thing that really stood out to me was how HUGE everything here is. Like big gallons of milk! Also bus drivers are so friendly.
Where I live back home is very similar to where I live here, I can see the water. My CAR! Before I came here I got a new car. I didn’t get to drive it very much! So I’m exited to drive it around once I get home
I heard about California when I went to New York with my dad. I was going to go to LA. I’m glad I came here, it’s smaller
So many fun activities offered! I like not having to plan so much.
Basketball, soccer, hiking, biking, movie nights, music jam sessions!
Enjoy it! Your time here goes by so fast!
Take a chance!
Improve your English while you’re here!
