Originally from Chad, Africa, I am a student who experienced the academic life in three different environments as I grew up between Chad, France, and Canada, where I developed a passion for learning new languages and discovering new cultures. As part of my final year of undergraduate studies, I decided to work on a study inspired by my own experience as an international student who experienced the academic life in various learning environments.
The purpose of my research project was to examine Ryerson's professional Communication students and identify their stress management techniques. The research focused on the sources of stress, evaluated the university’s performance on student’s mental health, identified the coping strategies adopted by most students and proposed a healthier alternative with the recommendation of health professionals.
