Student hopes to build home in multicultural Canada

People in Windsor are nice, says Yanhong (Amelia) Yang, who came to the city from her home in China’s Inner Mongolia region to pursue MBA studies in accounting.

“People are very friendly here,” says Yang. “They always say: ‘How are you? Have a nice day.’ That is nice.”

After completing a degree in public administration in China, she decided to gain international experience: “I wanted to see the world,” and is now enrolled in the English Language Improvement Program. She knows she has work to do to be able to express herself.

“It’s a little challenging for me,” Yang says. “The teacher challenges us to always do better.”

She has enjoyed cultural exchange with classmates from around the world, and says Canada is a welcoming place.

“When I have graduated, I want to stay and work in Canada,” she says.

Yang will begin master’s studies at the Odette School of Business in September.
