Episode 1 - Mojgan’s Story

June 29, 2017

Mojgan Nemati, a web developer at the University Health Network, left her home in Tehran, Iran 13 years ago. She talks about the realities of being an immigrant in Canada, and how finding home in a new nation means remembering your past but focusing on the future.

You are listening to UHN Home, where we're telling stories to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. Every week, we'll tell you the stories of people who came from all around the world and stories of people whose families have called Canada home for thousands of years. They all work at the nation's largest research hospital: the University Health Network.
