"My first day in Toronto" is a walk focused on showing newcomers to this city the emblematic places and a little bit of Toronto's history. Coming as a tourist and coming as an immigrant are two different experiences. As immigrants, many of us are alone and speak a different language, so we tend to isolate ourselves and not participate in the new city. Because one feels like they don't belong, building a new life takes time. By not belonging, one does not participate. An immigrant is in limbo, no longer belonging to their country and not feeling part of the new one. My goal is to bring new people together to share their first impressions of Toronto and show them the interesting facts that I discovered while exploring it.
