Community Involvement:

I have volunteered for the Neighbourhood Small Grants Resident Advisory Committee.

Interest in the Advisory:

I want to give back to the community now that I have borrowed many resources to successfully settle in Canada. I also enjoy helping others out!

Immigrant challenges:

The biggest challenge for me as an immigrant in Canada was learning the English Language as I was put into a kindergarten class with zero English knowledge and struggled quite a bit throughout kindergarten.

Vision for Surrey:

My vision is to have Surrey become very good at welcoming and helping immigrants integrate into our society.
