Nigerian students in canada how do you survive – travel (2) – nigeria electricity 4th grade worksheet

##

There are many "egbons" here that pretend that they are looking out for you and ask "do you want to make some quick cash"? One asked me for my account number so he could move some money inside. I didn’t know what he was going to do at the time but my father always told me there is never something for nothing. I politely said no. Later I realized it was cheque fraud! Can you imagine, new student to a foreign country and they try to get you in MASSIVE trouble!

3. If you need to call home, Cici is a good card. Readily available at gas stations and about 9cents per minute with no connection fee. There might be others. Get a prepaid call phone. BE VERY WEARY OF ANYTHING THAT IS A SIGNED CONTRACT WITH PERSONS OR COMPANIES. (This will make sense to you later when you arrive)

Again, might be controversial but, no matter how much you might like it there, you are a foreigner. There are still, even with its chaos, greater opportunity for you in Nigeria to make it big. Unless you are not the typical money driven Nigerian. I know I am. The thing with Canada and other 1st world countries is, its all been done. Whatever you learn, always look at it from a point of view how to use it to better your country and yourself.

I looked at my room mate trying to signal him that we signed up for an orphanage but the lady quickly suspected and asked how the food was tasting. I gladly answered terrific (real meaning : terrifying: scary, etc). That night while they went upstairs to sleep i and my room mate ran out to a 247 pizza joint and ordered extra large pizza (2 of them to espcape the hunger).

Since then we never ate with them, we rather ask them to buy what we wanted. So they woman obviously noticed we don’t like her food so thats when the problem started. i mean she intended to give us sandwiches, salad, potatoes and apple soup (she boils apples and extracts the water: lord have mercy). At one point we recommended they naija food so we can cook it ourselves( we only did this once a month cuz of the expense). But they already didn’t like us cuz they know we don’t like their food. Apart from all these the lady said cuz you are in Canada now, you have to be Canadian and eat Canadian food as well.

She recommended we wake up early in the morning and have breakfast with them and also come back at lunch and dinner to have lunch. we leave for school in the morning and come back at night it was tough to include it in our schedule and we were just 1 year in the country(2006) and ofcourse this was tough for us.

After one month, we told them we will be moving out and all hell broke loose. They started monitoring us everywhere we go in the house. i mean kitchen , bathroom, your room. They even stoppped giving us a ride to church and stopped talking to us.
