A day in the life of a TRU international student

University students have it tough. A full class schedule, papers and exams, all while trying to find a way to pay the bills. International students handle all of that, while adjusting to a brand new country and culture. This week is International Days where students from countries across the world celebrate their cultures. We wanted to find out about the struggles of TRU's International Students. We met Amanjot Singh. He is a part-time student and part-time employee. Daybreak's Samantha Garvey caught up with Amanjot on his way to work.
