I want to thank my mom and dad because they came to Canada with almost nothing but the four of us siblings. This may sound cliche as a family of immigrants but knowing what it feels like to be in one makes me proud especially with where we have come up to. No matter which path we head, they support us instead of judging us. One successfully got employed right after graduating college, one is planning on joining the force, I am in university to get my bachelors degree, and the youngest one is close to leaving high school for a path in medicine. Four years ago we almost got kicked out of the basement, our first home, because both of my parents were still unemployed and we were about to run out of rent money. Almost five years later, we are about to move out of our second home, we bought a house, and both of them are in the higher positions at work. My siblings and I would definitely not be successful where we are without them. This scholarship will help me pay for my tuition without burdening them.
