In our newest spotlight, we meet Elisa from Africa. He is a current Alexander College student who has recently come to Canada!

Living an Independent Life

Elisa shares that not only is it his first time in Canada, but also his first time uprooting by himself to another country without his family. He refers to it as ‘living a fully independent life’ and one that is filled with rewarding challenges.
