What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

The important lesson that I have learned, that I want to share with other Canadians, is that you should not be afraid to do what you think is right and what you should honour your promises and commitments. Additionally, it is important to treat everyone fairly by having an attitude of equality and behaving justly.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Our life is mostly the same. The biggest change would be the technology aspect. The technology is part of our daily life. We are surrounded by it. What a great addition!
