My first event at EY

I have to say it was pretty stressfvu d'EYul and quite intimidating to enter the “Tour First”, tallest skyscraper in La Défense. The EY offices are really awesome (especially at sunset) and so huge that I felt tiny! I wanted to make a good impression although I did not really know how to act. We were all well-dressed and quite impatient to discover this world.

invitée rentrée EYThis year, thanks to the organization and Mr. Baller, two new things were introduced. First, in addition to the speeches of Mr. Baller, Pr. Magnier and Léa Jouannin (current president of the AEGED), a high school student was invited to speak. I was really impressed to see a 17-year-old girl standing in front of a whole crowd, speaking so easily. I would have been too shy to just think about doing that!

Moreover, our parents were invited to join us for this event. I was really proud to show my father what I do – my mother was in India. Besides, seeing my father so captivated by my studies really encouraged me!
Indeed, Mr. Baller and Pr. Magnier presented the LLM and different destinations which made me dream. Moreover, Léa Jouannin outlined the association AEGED. The AEGED is really important and fosters links between different promotions of students, but it also enables us to know how to promote the school or how to create events like this one. professeur magnier et maître baller

Furthermore, I really understood during this event that I am not a high school student anymore. I also understood that I am not only a first-year law student but also involved in EY afterworks, conferences and professional discussions. Indeed, the different speeches helped me to realize that I am now in the active life. The ‘Grande Ecole du Droit’ is not only a law school, it also means important events and meetings with professionals and students.

After the speeches, a cocktail was organized and enabled me to talk with students and parents. It was a good way to learn about the working life and discover other professions. I was really curious but quite shy at the beginning. It was difficult for me to talk with people I did not know. Hopefully, I could count on the other students and we helped each other – after all, we’re all in this together.

This event was very helpful to begin this year with more serenity. The presentation of the GED and the AEGED made me understand what I am going to do and what I will need to face. Each of us at our own level can help and support the association, and that is very motivating and rewarding. Besides, I know we can rely on the other students and on the teachers.

To sum up, the start of the new university year at EY was important for me and motivated me! It was a really nice and helpful evening, and I am already waiting for the next one.
