I worked on the reception, and I enjoyed interacting with different people from different backgrounds.

FCJ is a great community centre where staff members are so friendly and welcoming. I have really gained experience in my field with the help of staff members especially Carolina Teves who was my supervisor. She never got tired of helping me where necessary. I liked working with all the staff members at FCJ and I will surely miss them.

I finished my placement in mid-January 2018 and FCJ organised a surprise farewell get together with the staff members. I was so surprised and happy. I cut the cake and said good bye to Francisco, Diana, Carolina, Loly and other staff members. I am really grateful to work with FCJ and I will always miss them. Thanks for the training you have provided, your support during the time I worked with you and keep the good spirit of helping newcomers and refugees in Canada.
