Korean Immigration in New Brunswick

This project goes over what it's like to be a Korean immigrant in New Brunswick, and this project goes over the good and bad things.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned that you should be proud that you have a heritage language that you can speak. While researching for this project, I found out that there's a lot of immigrants ashamed of their language, and their culture. I found that really unfortunate, and it made me more appreciative of my culture and language.

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

I learned a ton on the history of Korean immigration in Canada, and all about how it started, and where it's at today.

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

I'd say it's better for me, in terms of immigration. I find it's easier to immigrate now than the late 1800s, which was when the first Korean immigrant came to Canada.
