I’m happy with my first Canadian experience, I got along well with the team and the tasks assigned. I was able to familiarize myself with the way work is done and the programs used. In the end I learned a lot and the work environment was friendly.

I was very satisfied with this mentor/mentee experience; I had great supervision and I fit quickly into the team. People helped me find information and delegated me tasks and responsibilities across several projects and mandates, which strengthened my skills and allowed me to acquire new ones.
