From Canada to China: Tales from Hebei
My name is Kelly Sandor-Yang. I’m originally from rural Saskatchewan, Canada, but now I live in a small city in Hebei, China (yes, a few million people is “small” by Chinese standards!).
1. Why did you move abroad?
The short answer is that I was dissatisfied with my job and unsure of what I wanted to do (find a new one, change careers, go back to school). I basically chose to run away from it all for a year to try to figure it all out. Then, just to show that life really is what happens when you’re making other plans, during that one year I ended up falling in love with a Chinese man and deciding to stay. We are now married and building our life together here.
