Believe it or not, Dr. Christiana Okyere says her favourite season is winter.
“Back home in Ghana, there are only two seasons – the rainy season and the dry season,” she says. “During the Canadian winter, I love to wear a jacket and I love to cover myself with a duvet and get nice and comfortable…I just love it.”
Dr. Okyere came to Canada in 2015 after completing a bachelor’s degree and masters at the University of Ghana. She recently completed her doctorate in rehabilitation therapy at Queen’s, marking a transition from pure social science to health science.
