Jane Bagnall | Pursuit of Passions

"Hosting international students has been a life-changing experience for me. It opened my mind to new cultures, new ideas, and new ways of doing things. It's a chance to learn and teach, and the more you give, the more you receive. I would encourage anyone to take a chance and pursue their passions, no matter how unconventional they may seem."

Jane Bagnall is passionate about supporting others, in particular young people who have come from abroad to study in Canada.

Jane’s life has been deeply impacted by her experiences with these students and she's made lasting connections and friendships that have lifted her up and encouraged her through life. Her passion for these students taught her that the more you give, the more you receive.

Jane’s advice for others is to take a chance on a new interest. She didn't know what to expect when she started hosting international students, but it changed her life for the better. Jane’s new passion is socializing with different people and trying new things. She feels richer for it and encourages others to do the same.
