My name is Nicole Pollis and I’m from Brazil! I attended Global Village back in 2006 during a summer program when I was 13 years old!
It was my very first experience abroad, and I can’t put into words how much it meant to me!
I had a blast!!!
I didn’t know how to speak English really well so I was a little intimidated, however the teachers as well as the staff were always so kind and patient to all of us ! That made me feel hugged and so welcomed!
The classes were fun and I was able to get to know and make friends from all over the world!
Not to mention the location in the heart of Vancouver, which is so convenient!
It was definitely a life changing experience and even though I was so young and immature, the experience made me open my eyes to the world! I believe it was the first turning point!
Nowadays as an adult I work with English and I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity at Global Village at such a young age! I’m sure it influenced my life path in a great way!
