Many students forget school and go after money once they reach here – Canada-based lady reveals

Batouly Barry, a lady living in Canada has said the belief by many that moving abroad will guarantee success, is false.

In an interview with Legit, Batouly, said that although Canada has one of the best education systems in the world, schooling there comes at a higher cost for foreign students.

The Guinean native said the system is flexible such that foreign students can work while they study as the school period is different from working hours.

She however noted that many international students lose focus when they arrive in Canada.

According to her, they tend to direct their attention towards their jobs at the detriment of their studies, the implication of which is a loss of their educational startups or scholarships.

“…You lose your study start ups because the school and the immigration are linked – You cannot hide yourself.”

Batouly added that, unlike the US, it is also not possible for foreign students to live and work in Canada without papers or the necessary documents.

The lady faulted the notion that jobs are commonplace there as there is no place anywhere in the world that the government guarantees 100% job for citizens and immigrants, even in Canada.

“We are blaming the government back home that there is no job, there is no job. In Canada, the government don’t guarantee jobs to all citizens.

I’m sorry to say that… We have to stop lying.

“If I tell you there are jobs here, you’d be thinking that when you get here the next day you’d get a job.. You’d be looking for a job here, 3 months you’d not get.”

She slammed Africans who think that because they have a Master’s degree or PhD back home they’d get high-paying jobs.

“In Canada, we love diploma, certificate,” she says.
