Why did you choose to come to Canada?
Canada looked like a place with a lot of opportunity, options for professional people.
What was your first impression when you came to Canada?
Everything was so big. Spaces and vehicles and houses — everything was so much bigger and spread out.
What’s the one thing you love most about living in Calgary?
The friends and contacts that I’ve made since I’ve been here; it’s what’s kept me here.
What’s the one thing you still find a little bit strange (about Canada)?
I guess I’ve been here long enough to accept things as being ‘normal’.
What are three words you’d use to describe your new home?
Friendly, would be one. Diverse. Outdoorsy.
