I came to Canada from the UK in 2001 as a young 22 year old with a baby on the way.
We had no money, no jobs, no idea of what would happen. We knew that Canada was the right place to raise our family and be successful in our own right.
I found work in my field within nine months, and within seven years I had started my own company, employing Canadians, hiring Canadian companies as partners, and contributing to the Canadian economy.
I am married and we have four healthy children in Toronto.
In 2013 I became a citizen of this great country, and am now proud to say "I am Canadian".
