I am privileged by the opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Babita Kanda. I am from Punjab, which is located on the northern part of India. “The word PUNJAB is a compound of the Persian words PANJ (five) and AB (waters). Thus, Punjab means “the land of rivers”. The five rivers are the Sutlej, Beas, Ravi, Chenab and Jhelum. I came to Canada as an international student in 2018. I received my Diploma in Network Security Specialist (18 months) from Centre for Arts and Technology.

Since childhood I was curious about how network and computer systems work, so I planned to study IT in grade 8. After completing my high school as I got an opportunity to come to Canada, I decided to pursue my further studies in the same field in detail. I chose CAT as it is an institution that provides and delivers knowledge beyond textbooks. Studying at CAT was one of the best experiences for enhancing my skills.

Additionally, participating in many events and various intellectual activities helped me to score the highest rank. CAT provided me the extra aptitude and information to diversify my career openings by strengthening my abilities in the world of Networking. My journey at CAT is unforgettable and I’m proud to best part of the best institution for students from different countries with various cultures and habits to develop their knowledge.

After completing my Network Security Specialist diploma at CAT, I got an opportunity to earn a BCIT Business Management advanced diploma through the CAT-BCIT pathway. The CAT-BCIT pathway is a cross-institutional agreement enabling CAT graduates to enter the BCIT’s school of Business. After culmination, the candidate can apply for Post- graduation work permit.

Living in Canada was a great challenge for me, but I believe in learning new things and implementing them. Everyday in Canada taught me things that made me independent and helped me to get my foot towards success.”
