You don't know what inspiring is. I came to this wonderful country in 2003 with my wife and 4 suitcases and $9000.00. I was 26 years old when I came and it was the hardest thing I had ever done.We didn't know anything and anybody, everything was new to us and incredibly difficult. In 2013 I decided to start my own business and it worked out. Now I work with one of the highest end builders in the city and Whistler. People don't know how fortunate are to be born/living in this country. This country is my home, my kids are born here and I can't be more thankful.
Ok, now can I be inspired? I have always lived in the Vancouver area and am impressed by people who are brave enough to change countries, especially as you did with not much in your 'pocket' and no one here. Takes a lot of guts. Where did you move from?
I moved here from Bulgaria, Eastern Europe. Living there wasn't easy, during and after the communist. That's why I say how fortunate people are to be born in Canada.
I've always felt lucky to be Canadian and proud of it most of the time too. They say fortune favours the bold, true for you.
