Born and raised in Brazil, I chose to attend Ashton College because I wanted to improve my English and force myself out of my comfort zone. Ashton was my gift to myself, it was an investment in me and my future. My English improved immensely during my time in Canada, and after I graduated and returned home to Brazil, I landed a position in a management training program with a large telecommunications firm. Ashton helped me improve my business vocabulary and knowledge. I gained a different point of view and was exposed to a more international approach to management that will be invaluable to me as I move forward in my career.
Choosing a school is not just about what you learn within the four walls of a classroom. It is about the entire experience. I made lifelong friends and business connections and developed an international network, studying alongside individuals from Taiwan, Mexico, France, Japan, and Canada. I also had the opportunity to travel around British Columbia and Alberta, as well as throughout the Pacific Northwest; even Las Vegas! My experience at Ashton was fulfilling on an academic as well as a personal level. Use Ashton as a tool for your life- there are so many resources available to students and you get back what you put into it. With dedication and hard work, Ashton can be your foundation for an exciting future.
