Maser was born in Thailand but her parents were born in Burma. She moved to Canada when she was 9 years old. She currently attends R.E. Mountain Secondary. Maser enjoys joining programs that provide for youth, especially the program that made her life change. She has been joining other programs but she joined MY Circle three times because she made a lot of friends and understanding other cultures has been important to her. She believes as an immigrant person there is a lot we need to learn to live in Canada because this is our new home.
10 years after arriving in Canada, immigrants still face poverty rates twice as high as Canadian-born people. It takes 20 years for the poverty rates of immigrants to equalize with the poverty rates of persons born in Canada.
