Mary / Health Care Aide Challenge Graduate
"Robertson College gave me the opportunity and the honour to serve the people again, which I believe I was destined to do."
And so I did! When I got out of the Richardson airport in a trench coat and spring boots... it was an unforgettable experience, winter wise!
It wasn't easy for us to transition from the Philippines where we had our stable jobs and home. We had a hard time honestly, finding jobs.
I had a memorable stay in Robertson College because of the staff. They are so welcoming and they are very supportive. We were only 11 in our class, so that really contributed to the camaraderie!
I graduated from my nursing 8 years ago and graduated as a Health Care Aide 8 years after. I did obtain honours. I was like "Oh, the brain still working!" A week after I graduated, I applied and I got the call right away. It was really an experience for me, to have finally realized your hard work, your effort and your sacrifices paying off.
