“I found my ‘forever’ home”
"I came to Nova Scotia, Canada in 2017, where I found my ‘forever’ home. Born and raised in Brazil, I had 8 years of experience working in Supply Chain, and always dreamt to find a job related to my expertise in Nova Scotia. I completed a 2-year Business Diploma at the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) in 2019 with Honours. During my two years as a NSCC student, I participated in the NSCC International Student Ambassador Program and through this experience, had the chance to join the EduNova Atlantic Canada Study and Stay® program. These opportunities, combined with my studies, led me to connect to an employment opportunity after graduation in an aerospace company in Nova Scotia. I am part of a growing group of international student graduates who have been welcomed to stay in Nova Scotia and participate in the economic and social growth here, making our communities stronger."
