Meet a Learner: Nasib
"[Because] I can read now, I can start right."
Canada gives many newcomers a chance to get a fresh start. Growing up in the Fiji Islands, Nasib didn't have opportunities to go to school due to family obligations.
When she moved to Canada, however, she finally had a chance to achieve a lifelong desire - to learn how to read. Nasib's first step was attending reading groups at the Joyce-Collingwood Neighbourhood House.
