10th Annual Travel Video Contest Winners Announced
November 20th, 2015 by Jennifer Frankel

posterInternationalStudent.com just announced the winner of their 10th annual Travel Video Contest! Amar Chaniago created the video “My Second Chance at Life,” which captivated audiences around the world, not to mention stole the hearts of the judges. His journey began where he overcame a car crash which left him hospitalized, and became the source of his reflection where he reevaluated his life and the things that were important to him. Amar will walk away with the $4,000 grand prize to help him study psychology in Australia. You can also follow his journey while he prepares to study in Australia by following his new Study Abroad Blog.

It was no easy decision in this year’s contest, where InternationalStudent.com received over 80 videos from students around the world. The second place winner, Michelle Leclerq, also wowed the judges with her video entitled, “Place Yourself Where You Want to Be.” Michelle is an aspiring musician with both vocal and musical talents, and she is looking to pursue her passion by attending a music school in California. Her video takes us with her into her past where she completed a Work and Travel program, that gave her enough money to travel around the US and explore her musical passion (and from her video, you’ll see her amazing talents!). Michelle will receive $500 to help her pursue her dream!

The third place recipient of $250 goes to Léa Kriger-Bécourt, for her video entitled “The Missing Piece.” Her video is both fun and innovative, as she puts the pieces of her life together before us, showing us her past and revealing her desire to go to Mexico to work on a community farm program called WWOOF.

Finally, our Viewer’s Choice Award went to Murtaza Ibrahimi for his video “The Flowers of Success”. Not only will he walk away with $1,000, but he has touched us all with his story about studying in the US to help build the future of Afghanistan.
