In the eighties, I came to Canada alone as a Visa student with no English. Then I became an immigrant after working as a live in nanny/domestic housekeeping job under the immigration caregiver program. And finally rooted as a Canadian citizen with no regrets.
The life journey in Canada is bitter and sweet! New bonds friendships, churches and communities cares, unexpected adopted parents…discrimination, inequity, injustice…poverty, homeless, hunger…has paved latter part of my life as an anti-poverty activist, fighting to have policy/systemic changes to make peoples lives better!
