Have you ever thought of living and studying abroad? It's a big leap to take and requires thorough planning and intenstive research, but if it's something you're really eager to try, then it's worth pursuing--just ask this Pinay YouTuber. 

Rachel Dancel is a Pinay based in Canada. She moved to the country to study and eventually work, and she's been there for three years now. “I came to Canada in 2017 to pursue my dream of studying abroad and pursue my passion in graphic design," Rachel says.

The process of moving to Canada wasn't easy but, for Rachel, it was worth it. "Moving here was an act of faith and test of perseverance. To be honest, the process was challenging but overall a rewarding experience for me. This exposure to new ideas has given me an appreciate for art, culture and nature. Outside the classroom, I continued to learn and treat each day as an opportunity to grow. In return, I feel an overall sense of fulfillment and determination to succeed.”
