What was your first day in the US like?
I was comparing more towards like, all my life was in Canada. So it's not that much of a difference. The only thing is like, you know, compared to Canada, the U.S. was not as clean as it is. When I transitioned from the third world country to here, I mean, that was a big difference. Coming from Canada to the U.S. was not much of a difference because it’s almost the same country, like the same kind of culture and not much of a difference in rules and regulations and everything. What I found was that people are a little bit rude here, that's for sure. But after a few days, I found there's a lot of opportunities in this country. That's what I saw. That was my first impression of the United States.
What was the reason why you came to the United States?
I was a medical technologist by profession. So I got a job here. That's why I moved here.

Not yet. She came to study here. She was here a couple months before I joined her.
