After graduating with honors in high school, I had all but thrown away my ambitions of going to college.  I had no father, and my mother could no longer support my education.  I wanted to find work, but I did not know where to start.  After a friend referred me to Charity First Foundation, I managed to complete my three-year diploma on Computer Engineering Technology at the Technological University of the Philippines. I secured an internship with Immigration Canada upon graduation, and worked so well with the staff that they invited me to continue my employment with them permanently.

After working for Canadian Immigration for two years, I realized that my career potential could not be fulfilled without a degree.  I am now enrolled at the Technological University of the Philippines, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration, and I am hopeful that I will complete my degree by October of this year.  With my degree in tow, I look forward to the many career opportunities that await my return to Immigration Canada.
