On Friday, April 30th, ELC Los Angeles organized their first ELC ‘prom’. Students and staff dressed up in suits and fancy dresses, and staff decorated the student lounge in ELC colors (blue and white). Students were able to have their pictures taken in front of a specially designed bower as they entered. We had a ‘Project Prom Dress’ competition where two teams of students designed a prom dress out of materials such a trash bags and tape!
Students enjoyed punch and snacks before we announced the Prom King and Prom Queen (voted for by students during the week). ELC’s director, Lisa Miller, crowned the students with the most votes! The winners were Damian Haas, from Switzerland and Flavia Monti, from Brazil, with Shelly Xueer Men, from China and Valentin Kunz, from Switzerland, a close second. Finally, everyone headed over to Westwood Brew Co. to enjoy Happy Hour and celebrate at a prom ‘after-party’!
