Moving to a new country for university can be a huge adjustment. Being away from your family home, familiar food, and culture is hard at times. When I first moved to Canada, I found that talking to other international students about their experiences helped me adjust. Learning from each other is one of the best things we can do! For this international student spotlight, I spoke to Emilio Marcovici, a third-year Commerce student originally from Quito, Ecuador.
Emilio and I talked about what it was like growing up in Ecuador, some of the things he misses about Quito, and his favorite things about Canada!
We’re lucky at Dal that there are so many exchange and study abroad opportunities that allow you to see some amazing places around the world. While traveling is an amazing experience on its own, studying abroad and immersing yourself into another culture for an extended period of time can’t be beat. My abroad experience affected my future dreams and ambitions and changed how I view the world. My recommendation to you? Hurry up and apply before the Jan. 31 deadline (Jan. 27 for Dal AC students)!
