Volunteer of the Month - September 2015

Zohreh Kahkeshani is Immigrant Services Calgary’s Volunteer of the Month!

Volunteer Sept

 

Zohreh was born and raised in Iran. She has a Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering and seven years of experience in the oil and gas industry as a Process Engineer back home. She immigrated to Canada in December 2014 with her husband.

 

“I remember at that time we dealt with a known phenomenon as “culture shock”, as many other new immigrants. That was the starting point to try to figure out what is going on around us in this new society."

"We tried to participate in different events/activities related to Canadian culture. We found the volunteering as the most valuable and enjoyable activity as it helped us to find new friends, build our professional network, learn new things about the culture, and above all, satisfied our sense of humanity. Last but not least, my special thanks goes to Immigrant Services Calgary for giving me this opportunity to be part of the volunteering activities" 

 

 

Congratulations Zohreh!
