 Student Story:

Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, Student Stories "I'm going to Uganda in March 2008 as a volunteer to teach science, computers, sports, and so on; going to Africa is one of my dreams! I bet I'll have to do a lot of other things, too. In Japan, there is a governmental institute, JICA, to send Japanese citizens to developing countries to volunteer in several areas such as agriculture, civil engineering science, and so forth. I was immediately interested, and I applied for the job. After surviving tough English and science exams, I was chosen as a teacher in Busubizi Primary Teacher's College. My students will be the elementary school teachers. I'm so happy about this and I cannot wait to go! I plan to work there for a couple of years, and my life will have changed dramatically by the time I get back home. I cannot imagine that I could have had this opportunity without studying in Humber. I studied in the EAP and TEFL programs very hard!! I'm very thankful to all the staff at Humber."

Hiro graduated in April, 2006
