 "Being an immigrant woman to Canada, I experienced the trials of settling into a new country and CIWA's programs were  very helpful during this process. I always believe in giving back to communities and organizations that I live in and draw from.  Hence, I decided to participate at the strategic level at CIWA to formulate and implement a vision that will make a difference  in the lives of immigrant women in Calgary"
