Hello, my name is Sharda
Joseph an international exchange student here at NSCC Akerley Campus from the T.A
Marryshow Community College studying Business Tourism.
Here in Nova
Scotia there is so much to share about my experience so far, upon arrival to
Canada the one thing that was noticeable is the friendliness, helpfulness and
the generosity of the people. Coming from a tropical island when I stepped outside
the airport it was different, I wasn’t ready for the coldness, but surprisingly
my body has adjusted for the weather although everyone keeps telling me this is
no the real coldness.
different like the food, the music, the buildings, even the way I learned in
the classroom, I literally had one notebook throughout the semester but back
home I had one for each course and the bus system was confusing to me because the
buses here worked on scheduled unlike what I’m used to, I even the took wrong
buses and sort of got lost.
Despite everything I had amazing people who enhanced my experience. I got the chance to meet people from the industry and visit places such as Peggy’s Cove, Sherbrooke Village and wineries, I even went to my first hockey game which was amazing.
