Hannah from Nigeria: A Passion for Psychology and Helping Others

Written by Alexander College in Student Spotlight on June 15, 2023

Today we will be featuring a student from Nigeria, Hannah Nnorom! Hannah is currently studying psychology at Alexander College and it is her second semester here.

Study of the Mind

With an interest in human behavior, Hannah chose psychology as her major once she enrolled at the college. Hannah also notes how studying psychology gives her a deeper insight on why people behave the way they do and how biology ties into decision making.

She chose Alexander College as her school of choice because of the smaller class size, meaning more opportunities for one-on-one teaching. Hannah also loves how the college offers a variety of subjects to round out her education.

Beautiful British Columbia

When asked about living in Canada, Hannah doesn’t regret a thing. “I love it here,” she says, “especially living in beautiful British Columbia. I love the weather here as I get to experience both winter and summer.”

She also wants to experience what Canada has to offer with its oceans and forests in the future.

The distinct seasons aren’t the only reason she loves it here, though.

Canada, with it’s relatively generous immigration policies and programs that support students, encourages students to work towards permanent residency. This makes it very beneficial for students who want to become permanent residents.

Advice for Students and Looking Ahead

If there’s one piece of advice Hannah would like to give to other international students, it’s to push through. “The conditions may seem harsh,” Hannah says, “but bear in mind that there is light at the end of the tunnel.”

In regards to her future plans, Hannah is currently undecided between pursuing medicine or business. However, there’s one thing that she’s certain about and that’s wanting to help people in the future.

She’s not too worried about deciding right away – she knows she has the time and space to figure out the future while she studies in Canada.
