My name is Thuy Truong and I am a 4th year student at Laurier and currently volunteering for L.I.F.E (Laurier International Friendship Extension) for the 2013/2014 academic year. I am an international student from Vietnam and so I have been in Canada for 4 years. I believe that I have made a good decision to study at Laurier because Laurier is noted for its friendliness and sense of community. Even though there was a bit difficulties to me in the first few months in Laurier/Canada, but now I feel very comfortable and making a lot of friends in Lauier community.As an international student, I understand that studying abroad can be challenging. We are studying in a country where English is not our first language. The differences in culture, food cuisine and being apart from family might bring some difficulties. But don't panic and worry too much, my other L.I.F.E buddies and I are willing to take you through the obstacles and make you feel comfortable to the best of our abilities.
