Concordia names engineering school after Gina Cody, a first for women in Canada


"I arrived in Canada as a young student from Iran in 1979 with $2,000," Cody said in a news release sent by the university. "My gift to the university is for the next generation, so that more people can succeed like I did." She added that she wanted to make the donation because university is a place for "women, people of colour, Indigenous populations and other minorities to pursue their dreams."

Here is an example of an immigrant assimilating and succeeding through hard work and then wanting to give back. Bravo Gina Cody!!
