People Are Willing to Help
“I came from my native Cameroon to Moncton four years ago as an international student to study transportation and logistics. I was lucky after graduation to find work in my field of study at Keltic Transport, a job I still love. Recently my friend Jabbar Lawani and I launched “Design from Africa,” a clothing company that takes traditional African patterns and colours and mixes them with Western clothing designs. I have found the people in Moncton are willing to help if you need it.”
