First year psychology student finding her home in college residence

November 27, 2023 — 
Finding a place like home where you can connect with friends and enhance your student experience is what St John's college residence is about. Grace started her journey to Canada from Kenya to the University of Manitoba last fall, where she now stays in the St John's college residence. The first-year psychology student, currently in the Faculty of Arts, came to Canada last fall to the University of Manitoba, where she started her passion for learning about mental health. After 24 hours of travel to Canada, Grace felt at home at her college residence. Although it was late when she arrived, it took her no time to meet those around the residence, including the dons and residence council, who have quickly become some of her best friends.
