Hi there! My name is Matias Contras, from Chile. I came to Canada by the end of 2016 to learn English and try a new experience, hopefully for a good couple of years. Back home I studied psychology and worked in that field for around 3 years. Now I am taking my second semester of Computer Programmer at Georgian because I wanted to learn different topics and explore a new work field.
Now I am going to Denmark for 3 weeks to study Android Development at VIA University College, and everything was possible thanks to the support of Go Abroad Squad and Georgian College. I applied to this program because after coming to Canada and meet people and cultures from all over the world, I realized that I want to keep myself travelling and exploring the world. This opportunity is giving me the option of learning while getting an amazing life experience.
As a no native English speaker, the most challenging part is to achieve a good communication, but I am confident of myself, and I believe that everything will go sweet.
I want to encourage more Georgian students to get involved in these initiatives and make their student lives more exciting. Get involved!
