We are Good Neighbors everywhere in the world!
In November, we had a special event at Brescia University College in London with our neighbours. Hosted by Chinese International Volunteer Organization and supported by many other organizations, Good Neighbors Canada joined You Go Global Leaders! international fair event as Charity of Choice, hosting a raffle ticket event. This was a night for international students and anyone who was willing to understand and help what they are going through in Canada.
Our Special Guests
Olivia Chow, Jay Zhang, and many other special guests were invited to the night to share their stories and advices to the international and domestic students. Unfortunately, some of the speakers couldn't make it and there was some technical difficulties, but it was still a great opportunity to receive valuable insights. We may be from afar, but we are now living in the same community with people of different backgrounds. Understanding each other's cultures and differences are keys to live in harmony.
You Go Global Leaders!
We had an awesome guests and speakers, sharing their stories and listening them carefully. Naming every awesome person will be hard, but everyone loved stories of Sam from Fanshawe and Mohammed from Culture Works. How they came to see differences of cultures in their home countries and Canada... misconceptions and stereotypes... acknowledging and trying to understand differences in each other is really important both as an international and domestic students of Canada. This is where our future global leaders will step forward from and make differences in our global community!
You Go Good Neighbors!
