Ruxandra Nahaiciuc immigrated to Canada from Romania with her parents when she was ten years old. She describes herself as growing up simultaneously in the present and in the past. She says she has yet to find someone to convince her that it’s a bad idea because being a first generation immigrant dictates that she belongs to two worlds, or one, or one split in half. She feels that either way it's not good. Ruxandra made the decision to enjoy the experience, and so far, there has been nothing to regret.
