alpha secondary Before leaving my country I thought staying away from my family and having more freedom would be simple while making new friends was going to be pretty hard. I was surprised by the fact that it is the opposite. Missing family and feeling as if you are not in the right place are common feelings for everybody. However, people here in Burnaby, at school and the host families, are always doing their best to make you enjoy your experience and even if it seems hard sometimes, everybody would love being here, in a place where classmates are really friendly, and people around you just make you feel part of the group as if you had been living among them forever.
