Patience paid off

Canadian beaver cartoonYesterday was a very happy day for me. I was finally granted full permanent residence to Canada!!!!

I sent my initial forms filled out to Immigration Canada  489 days ago.  So after a long process that required lots of attention to detail, organization, translating of paperwork and above all patience, I am glad that the wait is finally over!

I should have a Social Insurance number and Permanent Residence card in my hands in about 8 weeks. Which means that I will soon start looking for a job again. I’m excited about rejoining the workforce and can’t wait to see what the future brings.

Thank you Canada!

I was born and raised in Monterrey on the majestic Sierra Madre mountain range in Mexico. Over 20 years ago my parents gave me my first camera as a birthday gift and ever since I got that simple point and shoot Kodak camera, I have enjoyed looking at the world from behind a lens. Technology has improved and I have upgraded cameras many times since then, but the need to capture a perfect moment remains the same. Photography provides me a way to communicate with others. Digital photography allows me to play with photographs and it enables me to sink deeper in the creative process. I studied photography for the first time in 1995 and continue to enjoy capturing special moments every chance I get.
