In August 2015 I came to Discovery Community College to pursue Health Care Assistance which went with my past training in paramedics. Being an international student from Crimea I knew it would be a challenge. However, the supportive team at DCC made it easy. My favorite part of the program was being in the classroom, it was fun and informative. The friendly environment made it easy as an international student to become engaged. I made a lot of friends at Discovery Community College that I will continue to stay in touch with. Attending Discovery Community College allowed me to see the working environment in British Columbia and made me career ready.
