Spencer Isaac, a recent graduate from the Immigration Consultant Diploma (IMCD) program, was honored to receive the Perseverance Award for his leadership abilities and fighting spirit. Spencer attended the Winter 2015 Ashton Achievement Awards as a Regulated Immigration Consultant who had already launched his own immigration firm. He is very determined to make a difference in Canada by working with refugee cases.
Born in Kazakhstan, Spencer studied in Turkey and in the US on a full scholarship prior to arriving in Canada. His work experience was varied, including award-winning video projects, as well as being a Senior Manager at Dell computers. However, Spencer has always had an interest in immigration and wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. He started volunteering in the immigration industry, and then decided to pursue Immigration Consulting as his career.
“I like volunteering: I am a member of CAPIC, and I also put my name in as a volunteer to help out by giving my expertise to the Syrian refugees settling in BC.”
Spencer took the full-time four-month IMCD program. “I liked the idea that it was only four months long. It was very quick, but also very intensive – I called it Bootcamp! I liked being able to interact with my classmates and ask questions: since I was already helping the refugee cases as a volunteer, I wanted to get as much information as possible on immigration law.”
Spencer has opened his own company, Prescott Immigration. He is currently doing immigration work here in Vancouver, mostly handling immigration and refugee appeals and hearings.
When talking about his experience at Ashton, Spencer was very grateful. “I really enjoyed taking classes at Ashton, especially the modules with Nevena . I learned a lot about immigration from both the legal perspective and the practical side. I am happy the instructors and the advisers at Ashton took their time to answer my questions and concerns: I felt like they really wanted to help me with my career.”
Spencer was very touched to win the Perseverance Award. “I set up the study groups to help everyone without thinking about the award”, he shared with us. “I am truly honored to be nominated by my class”.
