My #NCInternational experience:

When I first arrived at Niagara College I felt afraid because I was in a new country and away from my family and friends in Brazil. My fear quickly went away, however, because I started making friends from all over the world and learning about Canadian culture. I also had excellent teachers at NC who were accessible and supportive throughout my studies; I am grateful to them for always being very friendly and helpful. It’s difficult to choose the best part of my experience at the college because everything was amazing. I will miss this when I go back to Brazil.

My advice to future NC international students:

Never give up on your dreams and trust that you will achieve your goals if you persevere.
