Dayo Esther Omotayo moved to Canada four years ago from Nigeria. Metro talked to her about her experiences in her new home.

I came because my Mother died of Malaria and when my father moved to Canada, he made enough money to send me here.

What were your first impressions of Canada?

It was cold, but I am very happy in this country.

What is the one thing you love most about Edmonton?

I love cycling and the cycling community here.

What is one thing you still find strange?

Riding a bike, but I’m practising!
