"This is my first year attempting post-secondary. This is my first year away from home. This is my first lot of things. In the beginning I was nervous, I moved from British Columbia without any prior connections here. But my classmates and more importantly, the faculty of my program created such an amazing support network that I knew I could handle this year. Then the strike happened and half, if not more, of my support network is gone. Let alone my reason for being in this province. I understand the lack of answers, however, it's extremely difficult for people like me who are so far from home.
