Yesterday Lauren and I had the pleasure of meeting Ali, a 21-year-old student from Turkey. When he walked into the office smiling, we could immediately tell that he had a great personality! As he sat down to chat with us, his casually unbuttoned shirt defined his easy-going attitude and we could tell he was enjoying his time in Vancouver!
Why did you decide to come to Canada?

I do. I recommend it because it’s better than finding a job by yourself, they give support and offer guidance.

I get to meet new people every day.

What would you tell others about Canada as a country?
I would say that this country is a mix of Europe and America, it is a beautiful country. This is my first time in Canada and I love it because it’s very organized. Everything is safe, people obey the rules. Explore a new country as soon as possible, it’s very different! There’s lots of new culture and language.

I’ve been snowboarding, to Whistler and to Stanley Park!
What are your plans for the future?
