I have always seen Canada as the ideal country to study because of its excellent education system, safe environment, stunning scenery and cultural diversity. Thanks to the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP) scholarship, I had the great opportunity to study for the fall semester at the University of New Brunswick.

Taking classes at a Canadian university with professors and peers from all around the world was amazing. I was able to obtain a global perspective of finance and business. Similarly, I could enjoy both colorful landscapes and the change of seasons: summer, autumn and winter. The changes in the color of the leaves made a great impression on me.
