For as long as humans have inhabited the earth, individuals and groups have ventured forth from their homelands and communities in search of something more. Initially, these journeys were most often inspired by the need to escape hardship, such as food scarcity, natural disasters, or violence. As humans evolved, however, so did their needs. The desire to pursue a better self, a better life, became more intense with humankind’s awareness of their potential and the immensity of the universe. In the modern world, individuals have more reasons than ever to move and more means by which to do so. However, emigrating to a new place, particularly out of one’s home country, is not always easy. Fortunately, professionals like David Lesperance are here to help.
