First week at VEC
My name is Heeya Kim who will be graduated as a Wellness Counsellor soon.
I used to be a student at VEC a long time ago and I really liked people at VEC including Mr.Gardner, staffs and teachers. They are so caring and down to earth.
When I thought about where I would like to have my practicum, immediately the name, VEC came to my mind.
I have always wanted to work with International Students since I have been one of them and understood how hard it could be in another country.
I just had an information session on Life Skills Workshops yesterday.
I was surprised to see that many students are interested in learning Life Skills.
I have met some students already expressing their homesickness and I felt needed to be there for them.
Personally, I believe that everyone walks into my life with lessons and they are great teachers to me. I feel that I will have great lessons from people at VEC and I will have fun with them too. =)
Have a great weekend, everyone~!
Heeya is interning at Vancouver English Centre for two weeks. She has graciously agreed to add her experiences to this blog.
