Whether for work, study, or immigration purposes, moving to a new country can be a complicated and confusing journey. My own journey started from Mexico in 2005 when I obtained a Student Visa and moved to Kamloops B.C. to enroll in the Bachelor of Journalism and Public Relations program at Thompson Rivers University.
It was a stressful endeavour leaving my home and heading out into the unknown. Fortunately, the next 4 years of my life were spent not only getting a top education, but also getting to know life long friends in both local and fellow international students. I finished school feeling Canada was a second home to me and decided to explore opportunities for employment.
After obtaining a Canadian Work Visa, I was honoured to work as an intern at the Mexican Consulate in Vancouver. Although I started in the Public Relations Department, my desire to assist my fellow countrymen was strong and I was drawn to the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program. In my permanent position at the Consulate, I was responsible to liaison between agricultural employers and Mexican workers in order to find them employment in farms around BC. It was this position that truly sparked my passion to assist people with their immigration needs in order to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
I am now a Permanent Resident of Canada and have furthered my education with a licence as a Registered Immigration Consultant. My goal is to continue providing access to opportunities in Canada for all those who wish to work, study, or move to this great country. I look forward to hearing your personal story and assisting you in your next chapter in Canada.
