Amina is a 29 year old woman who came to Canada from Ethiopia in 2012. This was not a choice for Amina. It was a time of great civil unrest and Amina was witness to relatives and friends dying around her. She knew she had to flee or possibly lose her life. Being all alone in a foreign country and not knowing the language or customs was a life changing and challenging experience for Amina. This was Amina’s situation. The first thing she needed was an interpreter to help navigate the myriad of tasks related to settling in a new country. Apart from the language and cultural differences Amina had to get used to very different weather conditions. She woke up one winter morning in disbelief. She thought that the snow she was looking at was flour spread all over the ground. She walked outside, felt its cold wetness and marveled at what this was. In Ethiopia there is never snow.
