Vivien tells us why she loves BC
My name is Vy Ha Dang (Vivien). I am in Grade 12 at Burnaby South Secondary School. I am an international student from Vietnam, and I have been in Canada for two years. I enjoy travelling and watching movies during my free time.
Studying in BC has been the most fantastic experience that I can ever ask for. I really appreciate the opportunity to study with so many welcoming and genuine people here, who make me feel like home. Vancouver is also a bustling yet peaceful city with breath-taking lakes, scenic mountains, and so on.
Although my family is not here with me, I barely feel alone at all. BC has opened countless amazing doors for me as well as other international students, especially the diversity that it offers, so that we can easily blend in the lifestyle here.
In particular, studying abroad has shaped me as a person; I have become more mature and independent. I am beyond grateful for the valuable chance to study in BC, and I cannot wait to explore more of this province.
Congratulations again Vivien!
