When I left my country I never dreamt I could get a bursary, study at a prestigious university, and secure a position at a government agency and in my field of expertise after just five months in Canada. As hard as it was at first, enrolling in the IAFP program gave me the opportunity to learn the culture and adopt a new language and new way of thinking while studying business. Being successful in my studies gave me more confidence, and competing with Canadian professionals in classroom debates and presentations pushed me to say, “Yes, I can!” For recruiters, I was no longer a foreign stranger, but an international finance professional who is actively studying at Ryerson.
