Coming from Shanghai, I thought I wanted a big city like Vancouver, but once there I felt lonely and lost. That’s when I decided to move to a smaller city and college, and I’m so happy I did! As soon as I got to CNC I joined the International Leadership and Ambassador program, meeting lots of Canadian and international students. I quickly learned more about Canadian culture and improved my English. I even ran for Student Representative with the Students’ Union – and I was elected! Today, I am a full-time employee at CNC, where I get to help international students have the same experience I had. All these opportunities opened up for me because at CNC, every student has a chance to shine.
