Karolina Francis wears many hats – she is a regulated Canadian immigration consultant,a journalist, a business owner, a teacher of immigration law, a speaker, a workshop facilitator, a mother and an avid motorcyclist.

Her true calling is helping people to belong in Canada. She immigrated to Canada 15 years ago, from the vibrant city of Warsaw, Poland, to join her Canadian husband.

Despite her high education, knowledge of several languages and extensive work experience as a television journalist, she spent many difficult years finding out how to belong in this new Canadian society.

Belonging is one of the most essential and profound needs of a human being. In her work, Karolina not only assist people with their immigration journey to Canada but also helps newcomers find their way in the new reality. Her programs focus on four core aspects of life – workplace culture, education, finance and leadership.

Her passion is to give people tools on how to integrate into the society so they can enjoy their lives fully in the new reality.

Lucca and Rebecca explore Karolina’s experiences to see how it was made her who she is today!

Francisco grew up in Mexico City and in Winnipeg. He came out to the Wet Coast nearly a decade ago and has been involved in coffee ever since. During most of his time out here he’s been serving speciality coffees in the most diverse of settings; hospitals, independent shops, multinational chains, always making sure the customer received the most important product, attention. Most people would be surprised to know that Francisco has more than 15 years of experience as a highly regarded independent translator in the field of energy generation. As with most adults, coffee has been a permanent fixture in Francisco’s life. Instant, percolated, espresso, drip, all have been part of his coffee experience; even “combat coffee” (Army talk for 2 packs of instant coffee, 1 pack of sugar, 1 swig from the canteen, Yumm!). His favourite coffee drinks are double espresso, long, and a good flat white. We speak with Francisco about his core values and how they are at work in his life today.
