I still reminisce the overwhelming feeling upon my arrival in Canada when the fragrance of a clean and unknown air, the sight of crystal white snow and the scorching sunlight hit my senses for the first time and made my eyes close out of excitement, thrill and nervousness. I was alone and stayed at home most of the time to escape from the world for a long time. There I met a new friend, Echo who was an optimistic, friendly and lively personality. She encouraged me to participate in volunteering activities to help me open up with people. We spent memorable time in Chinatown. Fortunately, this activity was organized by a Chinese organization, so I felt relaxed and could relish the opportunity to befriend and interact more with people. I was assigned in a group of three boys and two girls, including Echo and me. Our responsibility was to make the street ready for the parade and stop people crossing the street during the parade. The long street and insufficient number of team members made our job far more difficult. I was appointed at the centre of street to warn all unknown foreign people about the situation in my poor spoken English. Initially I was scared and let few people break the order. But echo came to my rescue and helped me to shed off my inhibitions. Finally, I got courage to face and warn the people alone like Echo. Though I could not compose a whole sentence and standard pronunciations, I tried to make the local people understand in best possible way. I passed in my challenge successfully and felt grateful to know more friends by this activity. It boosted me a lot and taught me how to deal with others in English.
