范莎,梦想开始的地方

 

2015年1月,在30多岁的时候,我辞掉了国内令人羡慕稳定的工作,怀着一颗追寻梦想的心,来到范莎学习幼儿教育专业。从当初的忐忑不安,到如今的目标坚定,半年来,范莎给了我自信和力量,让我喜欢上这个充满了温情,机会和挑战的世界。

这里充满关爱和温情。来加拿大之前,听朋友讲国外的生活:好山好水好寂寞。但在范莎这所国际化的学院,我却很少感到寂寞。国际部的杨老师和石老师是留学生生活方面的保姆,从学习指导,到生活帮助,他们在方方面面,都给了我莫大的关心和支持。他们积极地给我介结各种俱乐部和协会,教给我这边的风俗习惯,帮助我尽快地融入生活。在两位老师的帮助下,我很快结识了很多朋友,生活变得充实起来。为了缓解留学生的思乡之情,国际部每个星期都会举办形式多样的活动,如新年晚会,外出参观,联欢会等,提供各种机会让我们国际学生交流沟通,尽快融入这边的生活。

这里充满奉献和互助。周围处处有乐于帮你的人。学术问题除了可以与教授讨论之外,学校 的Learning Center可以为你提供指导,计算机问题有Helping Desk,找工作写简历Career Center的老师亲自为你修改简历,签证问题有周四的Work Shop ……只要你主动求助,周围总是有那么多乐于与你分享的老师和同学,有那么多的资源供你使用。

       这里制度规范,一切条例清晰,有章可寻,让你的目标看得见,摸得着;让你有信心,有力量,看得清自己的路。学期第一节课,教授们将每一门课的制度和要求跟我们细细讲来,成绩考核,作业评价,课堂守则,都让我们心中清清楚楚,帮我们起步有规划,学习有步聚。制度的规范透明,让我更加清楚路该怎样走。更让我坚信,坚实地走好每一步,就会迎来机会的曙光。

这里充满了挑战。过去的半年,经历了象过山车般的生活,挑战一个接一个,一个急转弯过去,另一个急转弯接踵而来。安家,各种交费,Finial Exam, 签证延期……每天的大部分时间都是在上网,查寻,总结中度过。可我相信,留学的真正意义,除了获取课堂知识以外,那些课外的能力,比如人际交往能力,承受挫折能力,主动获取信息的能力,也同等重要。每一次走出Comfort Zone,对原来的那个我都是一次新的突破 。每经历一件事,新的知识就如海水般冲洗着旧的认知,让我学会了从不同的角度分析问题。

半年来,我积极的参加各种活动,国际部的,学生会的,社区的。我相信,所有知识都是触类旁通的,不论是什么专业,生活中所经历的一切都是课堂知识的延深,都为课堂学习作了积累。如果能从浩如烟海的信息中分析,归纳,整理出所需要的资料,解决生活中的困难,又何愁课堂上的那些书呢?广泛的参与社会生活并没有影响自己学业,学期末,8门功课全A的成绩为我的第一学期划上了完美的句号。

我感谢范莎学院,感谢中国招生的杨老师,如果没有在中国时与杨老师的一席交流,我或许还是呆在那个小县城,也不会走上这条梦想开始的道路。我感谢半年来帮助过我的朋友,也决心用自己的力量奉献这个社会。新的生活刚刚开始,如果有梦想,任何时候开始都不晚,哪怕你已经80岁了。

FanshaweThe Place Where Dreams Begin
Yuanyuan Kong

In January of 2015, at 30 years old, I resigned from my jealousy-inducing, steady job in China, and with a heart full of hopes and dreams, came to study Early Education at Fanshawe College. In the beginning, I was nervous but now I am confident in my goal. In this half-year, Fanshawe has given me self-confidence and strength and I am greatly enjoying this place, which is full of warmth, opportunities and challenges.

Fanshawe is full of warmth. Prior to arriving in Canada, friends told me that life outside of China was full of good scenery but also full of loneliness. However, Fanshawe is an international college and I rarely feel lonely. Professor Yang and Professor Shi of the International Office are the nannies for international students. They assist with everything ranging from academic to personal life and have provided me with a lot of care and support. They enthusiastically introduced me to various clubs and associations, and taught me the local customs, allowing me to quickly become accustomed to life here. With the assistance of the two professors, I made a lot of new friends and enriched my life. In order to help international students feel less homesick, the International Office hosts many weekly activities, such as New Year Celebrations, socials, and other opportunities to allow international students to interact and accustom themselves to life in Canada.

Fanshawe is full of assistance. People are very eager to help. With regards to academic questions, besides asking for help from professors, the school’s Learning Center also provides help, the Helping Desk provides technical computer support, the Career Center assists with job-finding and resume-editing, and every Thursday, the Work Shop offers visa assistance. As long as you ask, there will be classmates, teachers, and resources available to help you.

       Fanshawe has a clear institutional structure and transparent rules to allow you to reach your goals and to give you strength and confidence to see your future path . In the first class of the semester, professors will hand out a syllabus to allow us to know the methods of assessment and evaluation, the classroom rules, etc. We are then able to see clearly how to plan and improve. As a result, we are able to confidently pursue opportunities that come our way.

Fanshawe is full of challenges. The past year has been an eventful experience for me, facing one challenge after another. I had to move, pay various fees, take the final exam, extend my visa, etc. I spent every day searching for answers on the internet. However, I believe that international studies is meaningful because other than gaining knowledge inside the classroom, there are many skills to be gained, such as interpersonal skills, facing setbacks, resourcefulness, which are just as important. It is important to go outside of your comfort zone and re-invent yourself. With every challenge I face, I also learn a new way to view and address a problem.

I have enthusiastically participated in various events at school and in the community. I believe that knowledge is power and I seek to learn as much as possible about my major and life in general. Furthermore, I believe that life lessons help with learning in the classroom and so my activities have not impacted my studies. Rather, I emerged with straight As in my eight courses, thereby concluding my first semester with a happy ending.

I am grateful to Fanshawe College and to Professor Yang. If I did not have the opportunity to interact with Professor Yang in China, I might still be in my small town, rather than on this path to achieving my goals. I am thankful to all those friends who have helped me in this past half-year and want to use my abilities to give back to the community. A new life is just beginning for me but as long as you have a dream, it’s never too late to start, even if you’re 80 years old.
