Graduation Journey of an International Student.
Đã cập nhật: 2 thg 12, 2021
In 2018: I came to Canada on the day I turned 18 years old. I don't have any friends or relatives in Canada. My English was very bad. I cried so much and felt so lonely. But I never give up and try my best to study English for almost 1 year. Finally, I got enough English standards to apply to a post-secondary program at Humber.
In 2019: It's my first year at Humber. Everythings was so hard at the beginning of my academic progress. But I have adapted it and improved a lot of things. It's not only about the knowledge, but also my confidence, my communication skills. I also got my first part-time job as a server in a restaurant. I was so happy when I received my first salary and started aware of the value of money.
In 2020: My family had a financial situation, my parents couldn't afford to pay the full tuition for my second year. As you know, the tuition for international students is $15,000 - $16,000. It's really pretty much for me. I was so stressed and worried for a while. But I know that I have to do something to solve my problem. Fortunately, I got a summer break for almost 4 months and I spend my whole summer working for 2 jobs at the same time. You already know what is the result
In 2021: The final semester went through with a bunch of works: completing my internship, volunteering for the charity, working and studying. I look like a bee. Wow... I could not believe I graduated. Looking back on the whole journey, I want to say thanks to myself for not giving up on any circumstances. I would love to thank my parent always encourage and support me in needs. They are reasons for me to work hard and try my best every day. Thanks to all the professors and classmates at HUMBER. I hope everyone will achieve their goals and have a bright future. All the best to you, guys.
