"I am honoured to share that I was recognized today as one of 25 Top Canadian Immigrants 2022 by Canadian Immigrant presented by Western Union
Moving to Canada has been nothing but a success story for me. An international Student with big dreams but no clue where to start. So many people questioned my choice to study University of New Brunswick but I was convinced this was the foundation I needed.
The UNB’s J Herbert Smith Centre for Technology Management & Entrepreneurship (TME) embraced me immediately, I remember my very first week in Dominic Blakely class where I told him I was scared of the uncertainty that comes with Entrepreneurship. He gave me a funny look and asked how old I was... (Story for another time). However that was really the beginning of me trying to execute on my dreams.
