Title: An Immigrant Family and Mental Illness

An Immigrant Family and Mental Illness
  • Canada

My Family is Sri Lankan
  • My family is Sri Lankan and we have immigrated
    to Canada in 1986. I have a mental illness
    since I was 16 years of age. Even with my mental
    illness I went to University of Ottawa and
    studied Political Science, Master in Education in
    Second Language Teaching, Graphic Art Diploma,
    Counselling Diploma, Registered Professional
    Recruiter Diploma and most recently Smart Serve
    Certification. I now work as a Brand Ambassador
    and work full time. It is a very difficult life
    we have in Canada by being coloured immigrants
    and having stigma attached to having a mental
    illness. I have studied hard and work hard at my
    job because I know even with a mental illness
    there is hope and success that come with
    determination. I like to have a rewarding
    career and a life style like my university
    classmates and colleagues to aim higher and
    achieve greater things for the public service.
