My name is Quentin Sala. I am a 2017 NYA participant in the Canadian Program. So far, my experience down south has been really awesome because I’ve seen things that I have never seen before at home. Sometimes the weather is really hot, and when I’m at work or I go out, I start to sweat right away because I’ve never experienced this heat in my hometown.
My host family has been taking care of me well and I like them because they are funny and awesome. Together, my host family, buddy, and I went shopping and for a ride through the city.
My work placement is at Corberet’s Pet Shop. The pet shop is owned by the nice family and the boss goes to work at 4 or 5 in the morning because he loves his job. At our work placement my buddy and I have been feeding animals, cleaning cages, cleaning the warehouse, and organizing.
I like Windsor, Ontario because it’s a beautiful place. On the other side of the river is Detroit, it’s a big city.
This opportunity has made me feel proud because I am experiencing other communities and gaining a lot of experiences.
