When I was fifteen, I left my home in Cameroon.
“At first, I didn’t want to leave, I wanted to stay close to my family, but my parents knew there would be more opportunities for me in the future if I left. They were right. I am so thankful that Laurentian University has given me the tools to achieve my goals and succeed at the next chapter of my life.”
