Video transcript

My name is Alexa. I'm a legal assistant in a law firm located in Calgary, Alberta.

It was always a dream for me to move out of Mexico and look for better opportunities.

I decided to come to Canada as an international student to open my possibility to emigrate as a permanent resident with my husband and my two year old son.

It was a difficult transition at the beginning just to adapt to our new lifestyle.

Finding a job in Canada was one of the most challenging things to do but I got the resources that I need from the school Bow Valley College.

As a legal assistant, there are other opportunities to grow your career. You can also work as a legal clerk, as a due diligence coordinator. You can also work as a paralegal in bigger law firms.

I would like to attend law school in a couple years and become a lawyer or a Crown prosecutor.

It took so much work to get where we are right now.

I am definitely proud of myself of what I've achieved as a professional and as a woman.
