International Education Week (IEW)

November is a busy month for the Humber International Centre,  busy in part because of International Education Week (IEW), which is annually marked across Canada and at Humber. IEW is a celebration that Humber uses to encourage people to learn about different countries’ cultures and share the benefits of international education.

“... share the benefits of international education.”

The week started with an Opening Reception for the Global Lens Photography Exhibition at Humber’s L-Space Gallery at the Lakeshore campus. As an international student ambassador, I had an opportunity to give a speech at the gallery about how studying abroad changed my global perspective and my life. I shared the Canadian experiences I have gained through extracurricular activities during high school, meeting new people from different backgrounds, and trying different foods like poutine and maple syrup. Although I was a bit nervous, it was good experience to share what I have learned and talk about my journey to people who are interested in studying abroad.
