Since January, I have had the privilege of working in Dzaleka refugee camp in Malawi. As part of the WUSC Student Refugee Program, these students will be heading to Canada in August 2017 to pursue post-secondary education. I can’t wait for you all to meet these incredible students and I am thrilled to see what they will bring to our beautiful country.

Just a few weeks ago, the dialogue around refugees around the world took quite a severe turn – one that will be a challenge for our new classmates. I look forward to seeing how they tackle these new obstacles, and with our help, become prospering members of our Canadian mosaic.

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength.” – Justin Trudeau
