“It is hard to ask for help. But, in college we can practice doing hard things in this safe environment.
I know how hard it is to ask for help as I used to be afraid to reach out to professors or any other staff. In April 2022, I was almost homeless and had no one here in London, Canada. I went to the Fanshawe International office twice, but backed out because I was afraid to explain my situation.
But finally, I pushed myself and went to talk to them. I reached out to Laura Costigan (Regulated International Student Immigration Advisor) and explained my situation. She calmly listened to me and gave me lots of options, among which one was to stay at Fanshawe Residence.
I was late to apply for summer residence, but she contacted the manager and copied me in the email and helped to book a seat for me starting on the 15th of April. For 15 days, I stayed at a motel suggested by her, and as a Fanshawe student, I received a reasonable discount too. When we face our problems and ask for help, we are no longer alone. That was a huge lesson for me and with practice, it does get easier. Just ask.”
