Candidate Exposé – David Kabat

My name is David, I’m 21 years old, from Sweden and originally born in Poland. My future study it’s going to become a high school teacher in biology/chemistry.

20170812_153305 - david kabatI decided to go to Canada because I want to learn and improve my English and explore the second biggest country in the world. I found INTERNeX from another organization in Sweden. It was thanks to my school back home as well. I got very good support through the whole process from applying for a working holiday visa to having a place when I arrived in Vancouver and an introduction about the city, transportation, tax.

I chose the work & travel program. It was the best option for me, because back then I just finished high school. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I had the possibility to work, get new experience and learn to be more independent. The best part was to meet new friends from almost  all around the world.

Right now I live with a roommate in downtown. I found it thanks to a friend.

My first impression was great. The nature, mountains and my biggest surprise was how open and kind people are here, completely different from back home.

David KabatThe events INTERNeX organized were the best. I attended lots of INTERNeX events. This is the best time for spending time with your friends, making new friends and welcome new people. Of course I had lots of fun during pub nights and trips. I did lots of hikes in places close to Vancouver. I have also been to Tofino, Victoria, Rocky Mountains and Whistler.

Vancouver is a safe city, there is a lot of nature and art in the city. It is a very multi-cultural city I could feel free in. The most memorable thing I did was bungee jumping in Whistler and the Rocky Mountain trip. The first thing I will do when I am going home is meeting friends and family and starting school again from my break.

Tomorrow it is again time to watch a soccer world cup match together.  We will meet us at The Blarney Stone at 8:45 am to watch the soccer match between Germany and the United States. It is the third match in this world cup of both teams and also the most important match for both teams. The winner of this match will make it into the next round, for the other team it could be the last match of this world cup.

For this match we decided to go to The Blarney Stone in Gastown. We will see the match on a  20 foot big screen, that’s is really amazing, you won’t miss anything! For the matches in the morning they offer a special breakfast and brunch menu, so everything is prepared for an exciting match with hopefully the right end. 

The Blarney Stone is located at 216 Carrall Street in Gastown.

Get your german outfit out and start your morning with supporting the german team into the next round! We will be happy to see you there!

Review: Soccer World Cup – Germany vs. Ghana

Last Saturday we met to watch the Soccer World Cup match Germany against Ghana, the second match of both teams in this world cup. So we all were at 11 am at The Pint, ordered some food and drinks to be ready for an exciting soccer match. While we waited for the kickoff we discussed about the world cup and about our bets for the match, everything was about soccer, which was really fun.

After the kickoff all of us followed the game very curious. It was a very nice atmosphere in The Pint. A lot of Germany-supporters and some support-chants during the game. Even when the match wasn’t that good from Germany. In the end it was 2-2, maybe some of was were a bit disappointed, but now it is up to the third match. We will let you know where we will meet us for this match in the next days!

 

After the match most of us decided to enjoy the sunny weather at the beach or with a bike ride around the Stanley Park. After we rented our bikes we followed the way into the Stanley Park to enjoy the sun and the amazing view when we biked along the Seawall. It is really fun and enjoyable, if you didn’t tried it before, you really should do it while you stay in Vancouver!

 

We hope you enjoyed your weekend and be ready for the upcoming week. Please remember that there won’t be a PuB NiGHT on Wednesday because of the PuB & Club NiGHT on Friday!

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday “Happy Mother’s Day”

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood all around the globe. Though is celebrated on different dates depending on the country, it’s for sure and special date for all of us!

Happy-Mother-Day-2012

In Canada, is one of the most popular festivals after Christmas and Valentine’s Day and is celebrated in the second Sunday of May (like most of the several countries around the world which celebrate this festivity). So this year, it’ll be celebrated the 12th of May!

In Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Lithuania, Hungary and Rumania for example, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of May, instead of the second one.

Although we don’t celebrate it exactly the same day (in many other countries is celebrated in an entirely different time of the year), the spirit is the same: we pay tribute to our mothers and thank them for their amazing constant support, unconditional love and their devotion.

Normally, cards and flowers are the most common gifts, but I think we should be creative and show our “personal” character on them.

For example, what about a small trip? Or a therapeutic massage? Sounds great eh? Of course it does, and I know our mothers will appreciate that!

Sometimes, I know mothers just want them us to be happy and just  a few words are more than enough. The most important issue is to demonstrate our love and support, like they do every time with us!

For all the world’s mothers: HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY !!

Best,

Mercedes

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday – Mario Fighting for Kids

This year six million children will die from hunger related causes and more than 750 children will require treatment for cancer at BC Children’s Hospital. Sadly, those statistics are probably not the first thing you want to hear on this lovely Casual Friday, but it’s true.

I don’t know where most of you are in life, but for myself, I often take my warm house, clean food and water and my healthy body for granted. More than one billion people in the world cannot afford to do so. The past Thanksgiving holiday has made me think about what I can do about these problems that seem so big and untouchable.

This is why I want to tell you about an amazing person and his ambitious goal that I’m so honoured to be a part of:

Meet Mario Schiopu.

Mario is a former Romanian karate champion and has grown up seeing malnourished children in his home country. Yet, he has also seen the generosity of Children’s Hunger Fund in distributing 1 billion dollars in food and other resources to help 10 million children in 73 countries worldwide. As well, Mario witnessed the difficulties of leukemia on his close friend’s son, Adrian last year. Thankfully, with the chemotherapy treatment Adrian received at BC Children’s Hospital, Adrian is now cancer-free and full of energy!

Seeing the positive effect that these charities have brought, Mario feels the need to do something more. Instead of celebrating with an extravagant party for his 50th birthday, Mario has decided to combine his passions of karate and fitness with helping children in need at the same time.

How is he going to accomplish this? Mario will be making a huge comeback in the karate world by fighting at the 2012 Karate BC Provincial Championship on November 17th and 18th. With his knowledge as a nutrition and fitness consultant, Mario is proving that even at the age of 50 he has what it takes to compete and win at this prestigious tournament. Mario is hoping to raise awareness and funds for the two charities very close to his heart – Children’s Hunger Fund and BC’s Children Hospital.

By fighting with everything he has, Mario is committed to helping children who are suffering with childhood diseases or are in desperate need of food. This may seem like such an ambitious goal, but Mario’s heart is definitely big enough.

Cheers,

Queenie

So remember, Cheering helps!
