Coming to Canada is a dream for many around the world including my family and it took us 3 years to make this dream a reality and what better way to relive and celebrate that experience than sharing it in a beautifully scripted piece that details our ups, downs, disappointments, win, pitfalls, roadblocks and the victories along the way, key parts of our submissions, what my friend and I learnt about other provinces and even my family's experience upon arrival.
I am a middle-income Nigerian-Canadian lady who has had family, friends, and foes relocate from Nigeria to places like Canada, Germany, USA, Norway, Australia, etc. They moved to gain access to better healthcare, stable jobs, companionship, security, education; basically, a better standard of living. My move was born out of an innate desire to build capacity, improve the quality of life for myself and my family, and reside within an efficient system — one that worked.
Today, I have made that move and couldn’t be more proud of that decision. #HelloCanada is about life opportunities told using my personal immigration story and my experience during the process of relocating is what led me to write this book and Iam excited to share my journey with you.
