Abdo learns about Canada; Canada learns about Abdo

The amazing Abdo has been part of the Lamp Lifeboat Ladder family for more than 5 years. He resettled to Toronto in October 2021 with his parents and siblings. Since arriving he has started interviewing passersby in different parts of Toronto, asking them questions about the city and filming their responses, adding the clips to his YouTube channel 'Abdo Tube'.  He said it's a fantastic opportunity to practice his English whilst also learning about Canada and meeting new people.  We love it! We'll be interviewing Abdo about 'Abdo Tube' and his experience in Canada very soon.

In the meantime, please subscribe to his channel, enjoy his videos and stay tuned for more!
