My parents and older siblings are first generation immigrants. I am the first natural-born Canadian in my family. I grew up in a blue-collar neighborhood in a small bungalow. My parents would be considered uneducated, but I learned my most valuable lessons from them:

Don’t pre-judge people.

You have to work with your head or your hands (said to me when choosing a career path).

Self-reliance.

Creativity.
