My first months in Canada were rocky to say the least. Had a lot of #depression episodes, felt like giving up & didn’t know where to turn for help or how to ask for help. In retrospect, It was a lack of professional & social support system. I wish I knew #IWS by then!
#IWSvoices
Months went by before I realized I should motivate myself & be grateful for the #chance I've been given! After a year, I returned back to "normal", my old, happy and motivated self. I was #thrilled to wear the toga on my graduation, no togas in #Dutch graduations! #IWSVoices Image
I was graduated now what? Visited many jobfairs and went to resume workshops. Still couldn't land a scientific job. Worked as customer service agent and inventory control asistant at Cirque du Soleil & David's Tea resp. The job quest continues. #IWSVoices #jobhunting #polyvalent Image
Currently, I teach Dutch & Amharic as a freelance. #Teaching is my other #passion next to science. Also gladly involved with the works of #IWS_Network. My new hobby together with hubby is #YouTube. take a look at our channel if you want. Link in my profile! #IWSVoices #hobby #IWS

I am #grateful for the opportunity given by #IWS_Network to share my story, struggles and success in the voices without frontiers (VWF).
My name is Betelhem, most people call me Betty and I prefer it that way. I was born 27 years ago to a young couple in AddisAbeba, the capital of #Ethiopia. #IWSVoices 1/n Image
My mom and me rather look like sisters. Despite being a teenager when she got me, she sacrificed her whole life to raise me up. She made sure I had the best #education possible. I am forever grateful to my mom sis & do everything to make her and God #proud. #IWSVoices 2/n Image
