Karla / Health Care Aide Challenge Graduate
"When I first came to Canada, I couldn't be a nurse again right away. Through Robertson College, I was able to work in health care again. Now, I am able to travel and see the world and still be able to support my family back home."
it was the first time I rode in an airplane. When I deplaned, it was wintertime and the wind breezed through me. I thought, "Wow! I stepped into a freezer!"
When I was finally employed and I could get my salary, that gave me a lot of freedom and independence. After coming to Canada by myself, I had to restart from scratch. I was nobody and my pride was crushed.
Robertson College helped me work in the healthcare field again and one day, I will work in nursing again. If I never moved here, I would still be the same person I was before. I can sponsor my family to come in any time now. I love my family so much and I would love to be reunited with them again.
