Spring-Summer Activities 2018

2019-12-09T22:49:13-05:00

Finally the warm weather is here to stay, so we thought of organizing activities to get out of the house! When landing in a new country it's hard to develop new relationships and most people don't know where to start. Even if you have been living in Canada for quite some time, or all your life, it's always refreshing to meet new people. Your personal network is not just the people you meet through work, but also the people with whom you interact in casual settings. We would like to help this process by offering some informal activities that are [...]

UnstoppableMe celebrated its 3-year Anniversary!

2019-12-09T22:49:30-05:00

On May 12 we celebrated our first 3 years by hosting a big networking event in Toronto. The event started with a presentation by the Founder of UnstoppableMe, Miguel Abascal, and Liliana Nakamura, the President. They spoke about its humble beginnings in April 2015 as a networking/mentoring activity, and how the organization grew exponentially each year. Our great volunteers who contributed from February 2017 to April 2018 received a coffee mug with the UnstoppableMe logo. We chose coffee mugs because meeting over a coffee symbolizes connecting and building win-win relationships. Later on, there was a networking bingo, some [...]

The Unstoppable People Project

2019-12-08T19:14:50-05:00

In November 2017, UnstoppableMe.rocks was awarded the Multicultural Community Capacity Grant by the Government of Ontario. This was a huge accomplishment, given that we did not have much experience in grant writing. Everything was impossible until someone did it! The funds from the government were used to produce 40+ videos over a period of 4 months, covering topics of interest for newcomers to Canada such as networking, mentoring, success factors for immigrants in the Canadian job market, the value of volunteering, etc. We invited subject matter experts and community leaders who inspire, help and support immigrant professionals on [...]

Whatever your feelings may be, go help someone

2019-12-08T15:06:13-05:00

The founder of UnstoppableMe, Miguel Abascal, once said: If you feel depressed, go help someone and it’ll go away. If you feel happy, go help someone and it’ll multiply. If you feel failure, go help someone and you’ll discover many treasures. If you feel successful, go help someone and you’ll find significance. If you feel you don’t have anything to offer, go help someone and you’ll find in that one ‘Thank You’ how something so small can change a person’s life. When I read this quote for the first time I wondered, how can I go help someone when [...]
