Ai Kobayashi, High School Program Coordinator

I’m from Tokyo, Japan. After high school, I came to Toronto as an ESL student on my own. At that time, I literary had no English skills so I had to study from the very beginning including basic things like grammar taught in middle school. It was also my first time living away from home. However, during my stay here, I fell in love with this Canada, and decided to stay longer; thus, I enrolled at Seneca College where I majored in Hospitality Management. I have worked in the hospitality industry and the media industry before joining MLI, and it made me a knowledgeable person. If you want to ask me questions about foods, travels, events and fun things to do in Canada, I’ll probably have a good suggestion for you!!

 

As you may guess, I love to do all kinds of fun things!! I enjoy eating dishes from different countries, cafe hopping, cooking, baking, hosting events, watching dramas & movies, playing tennis, cross-stitching, knitting, and so much more. There are still things I haven’t tried so I am always looking for the opportunity to challenge myself with something new.

 

I also want you to be willing to try many new things in Canada. I know that you have flown half way across the world to get here but it is just the beginning. There are so many more things to try and learn from while you are here. Please, just remember that I will always be there for your life in Canada, so get over the fears you have, be open-minded, and enjoy your stay.
