After three years of relative isolation, my summer of 2023 was epic. I saw Canada by going to McGill University through SHAD Canada and then to Halifax, Nova Scotia, for one week at FNJA – a bilingual program that made me a junior French ambassador. This video submission is an effort to capture the magic of the summer I saw my own country and fell in love with Canada.
