"As a first-generation Canadian, transitioning to university was a culture shock. My parents came to Canada as refugees looking for a home. Finding a space in Vic student life and campus involvement allowed me to build a community of my own at the University of Toronto. Now, I can live my dream of getting a post-secondary education with friends and family by my side"
