“I leave CAIWA with more confident in myself knowing that I can do anything if I truly believe in myself, sometimes we need someone to give us a push, to help us climb to the next step, being immigrant is not easy for many of us. Sometimes we struggle in many areas of our life and especially learning English but we are tough and smart people. We fight for what we want and we don’t give up easily.”
