We’d like to introduce you to another one of our star graduates, Alina B. She was the valedictorian of the 2023 Matrix Academy graduating class. During the graduation ceremony in Kazakhstan, she expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to study at a Canadian school while living abroad. She explained that the live classes held on Zoom created an intimate environment that allowed her to connect with her teachers and classmates, forging strong bonds that could last a lifetime. According to her, the most valuable thing about studying at Matrix Academy was achieving a high-quality education, all in English. This allowed her to develop her English language skills at an accelerated rate and led to her achieving her ultimate goal: acceptance into Select Aviation College in Gatineau, Quebec.

For many years, Alina has been passionate about aviation. As a result, she became interested in becoming a pilot. The desire to pursue this dream grew stronger as time went on, but she faced multiple obstacles to achieving her goal. Firstly, in Kazakhstan, she would never be admitted into an aviation college due to her vision problems. Secondly, in her native country, women are strongly discouraged from pursuing careers that are typically viewed as “men’s jobs.” That’s why Alina was thrilled to discover that these barriers don’t exist at aviation colleges in Canada.

Now, with the help of Matrix Academy, she is getting ready to begin her studies in Canada in autumn 2023 at Select Aviation College. In her own words, “I also got to know the Canadian mentality better and am now mentally prepared for training as a future civil aviation pilot in Canada.” Way to go, Alina!
