Meet Natasha E. Feghali. She is a Lebanese and Croatian Specialist Educator, International Journalist and Speaker. While reflecting on her family's immigration story this is what she had to say.
"My family. A mixture and hybrid version of the modern Canadian. My father came to Canada in 1976 from Lebanon and my mother is a 1st generation Croatian-Canadian. We are the fabric of culture, ethnicity and language. Our home is a melting pot as we have welcomed so many newcomers to Canada and been exposed to our own heritage over the decades. It's important for us to keep our culture and heritage as we are far from our native homeland and embrace our new home in our hearts. Our fondest memories are holidays and special celebrations as we come together and re-create our traditions as a family and remember our friends become family as they are also immigrants to their new home land. Forever more will we always keep our culture and traditions in our hearts and minds."
