Humans of Garneau: October 25, 2021

“What was the happiest moment of your life?”
“It definitely had to be when my family and I immigrated to Canada. Before, life in Jordan wasn’t easy. My family was living in a desert camp, and we were too poor to afford to live in the city. It was really hard back then, but luckily we moved here to Canada. It’s for sure a lot better than my life before, and I am grateful for that.”

“I like to sing and play guitar. I had a friend back in Pakistan, about 2 years ago, who played guitar. He didn’t really sing, but we sang and played guitar together. This is my first year in Canada and we keep in touch with Skype.”

“What do you want to be or what do you want to do?”
“I want to be a paramedic and go to college or university. Or a policeman. I’m still at a point where I don’t know what I want to do with my life. Both fields are interesting, and they help a lot of people. I didn’t want to go into the police force, but I did an internship with them and I understood they were just everyday, outgoing, friendly people.”

“What do you want to be?”
“I want to be an event planner for all sorts of things: weddings, birthday parties, everything. Something about it just motivates me. I like finding out what people’s likes and dislikes are, planning it out, and seeing it happen. It’s fun!”

“What do you want to be or what do you want to do?”
“I’ve always really wanted to go into the medical sciences. If that doesn’t work out, then computer science.”
“Any reason?”
“I’ve always just been really into the medical sciences. And being around my family, many of them are into that, so I already know a lot about it.”
