Anar Popatia: Canadian Immigrant Magazine names Top 25 Canadian Immigrantsvia /www.vancouverdesi.com, by Larissa Cahute – Like many new immigrants, Anar Popatia came to Canada for a better education and a better life.

She travelled from Kenya to Ontario, where she enrolled as an international student at Brock University to study business and economics.

Now, twenty-seven-years later, Popatia is a successful business woman — a partner in a family wealth management practice under Assante Wealth Management.

She credits her success to focusing on the positives instead of the inevitable struggles immigrants face in a new country.

“I focused on the many gifts I received as a newcomer: so much kindness and generosity from my peers and professors and a host family that took me in as their own,” she told Canadian Immigrant Magazine.

“These things were precious to me; they made me feel like I belonged.”
