I’m currently in grade 11 and I’m currently studying at a secondary school in East Vancouver. Have you ever heard one of those typical stories where students get lost on the first day of school? Well, I have another story to add to those. Yes,  I got lost at the first day of school. Thankfully, the students there were so friendly and I barely had a hard time in the school. They even offered to tour me around the school, and guess what? I got a friend on my first day.
A friend. On my first day!
The teacher was also very helpful. They are always there to give you a hand whenever you have problems with your studies. The school teaches you to be very independent too; you are required to work if you want to graduate. Next, if you ever get lost around the city, just ask anyone around the area and they are assured to help you. In conclusion, Vancouver is a very safe and good country for new immigrants. Don’t worry about not being able to adapt well here. There are always great opportunities for you here in Vancouver that will help you find your way into your new life here.
