Hello! First of all, I’d like to welcome the new Niagara College Students!
My name is Santiago but you can call me Santi!
I was born in Mexico and I know two languages; Spanish and English. I am currently enrolled in the Photonics Engineering Technology program at the Welland campus.
I consider myself as a friendly guy with a considerably high passion in science and technology (note why I chose the photonics program). I also really like listening to music and to sometimes perform along with it instrumentally! I also like to do sports, but my favourite sport is definitely Tennis. I am not a party guy (believe it or not), I’d rather stay at home doing something I like or playing some video games!
I will be very happy to answer to any of the questions that you may have!

Hello, my name is Luis André Moura de Souza e Silva, but you can call just Luis.
I’m from São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Brazil, and I am still here because of the borders were closed few days before my travel to Canada.
Unfortunately, I only speak Portuguese but I am improving my English since I started EAP course level 5A at Niagara College. Once I am fluent, I intend to learn French.
I am a Mechanical Engineer and have a bachelor diploma in Law, but almost all my work experience is in the logistic area.
I am married, and have two sons, 15 and 12 years old.
My academic course in Mechanical Engineering will start in September/2020, totally on line. Even though, my family and I would like to be already in Canada to start learning the Canadian culture, meeting my classmates and making friends.
If you need any help, please feel free to contact me, because I would like to repay all the support I’ve been receiving since I joined the Niagara College.

Welcome to every new student who became a part of the NC community! My name is Anastasiia and you can call me Ana. I am from Russia; I speak Russian and English.
I am about to take the Administration Business & Marketing program at the Daniel J Patterson Campus (formally known as NOTL campus). I like to study languages, watch TV shows (specially comedies), solve puzzles, and to
go outside for either a walk or just to hang out with my friends. Before coming here to Canada, I lived in England for 1 Year. There I studied English. Also, I met a lot of people, so now I have a lot of friends all over the world!
I came to Canada for the first time in January of this year. I completed level 5 of the EAP program (English Academic Preparation) in April. Even though I couldn’t spend much time inside the campus, I enjoyed my classes and I am grateful for having a chance of making such good friends with who I keep in touch nowadays.

I will be glad to answer questions you may have. Your Niagara College journey starts right now!
