Immigrant Services Calgary

Claire Hwang, an immigrant from Korea, has been living in Canada for 18 years. On Dec. 21, she took her first ever ski lesson. While learning any new sport can be intimidating, Claire and her kids came out the other end of their day of lessons with a new skill that they were eager to keep developing. With a new reason to brave the snow and cold Alberta winter, Claire kicked off her journey. Here’s a sneak peek at how the day went.
