Associate Degree in Intercultural and International Studies. Now studying International Studies at Simon Fraser University.

“I was worried about what and how to study in a different country, so I decided to apply to Douglas to take some time to adjust. Douglas helped me adjust to a new country’s educational system first and understand who I really am and what I want to do in life.”
