Student hopes to share Canadian holiday

Hassan Karaki loves Canada.

“I want to understand everything I can about Canadian culture,” says the third-year biotechnology student. “I love this country so much.”

Karaki hopes to be paired with a local family for the Host for the Holidays program, which matches international students with Windsor families willing to open their homes for a Thanksgiving meal.

He hasn’t seen his Lebanese homeland since arriving in Windsor more than two years ago. As much as he likes Windsor, it can be lonely.
