"I was scared that my transition to SFU would be hard since I didn't know anyone. Luckily enough I came across the global connections program which was a free and open opportunity for me to make connections, even prior to my travel here. When I arrived my mentor immediately reached out to me and made herself feel available if I had any questions about university. I had a lot of questions in my mind: How is first day going to be? How are classes? Will I handle it?, and of course, my mentor was very patient to answer all of my questions. Not only not only did I gain a mentor, but I also gave a lifelong friend who would help me throughout my university life and even beyond."
