Small act of kindness

by lokeshvt,
I came to Canada in 2005 to pursue my engineering degree at McMaster University in Hamilton, after graduating in 2011, I got my first job in Burlington as a software developer, I used to use public transport to get to places, and on several occasions the bus has stopped for me at a safe location if I was running to the stop and missed it, once I was carrying groceries and someone offered to give me a ride home, you don't find this sort of compassion anywhere else, it motivates you to get out of your comfort zone and help others, especially if you are an introvert like me, Burlington is a great family oriented city like that, I like that it isn't too fast paced like Toronto, but has many of the benefits like the city. I finally bought my first condo in 2019, and hope someday that I can work for and represent the city.

PS: I have a pretty cool postcard and coin collection of the city of Burlington, some nice collectibles that I enjoy showing people from time to time.
