Hi, my name is Hillari Luna and I’m a Student Border Services Officer here at the Vancouver International Airport.
I work on the frontline with Border Services Officers.

I process people at the Primary Inspection Line and help facilitate their exit out of the Controlled Customs Hall.
I was 13 when I first moved to Canada.

The move from the US to Canada was very scary, but when I landed I was met with really great officers who made everything a little bit better for me.

When I first started working as a student, I thought it was full circle, but it didn’t really become full circle until I landed my first immigrant here.

I do not think anyone can imagine what being a Student Border Services Officer is like because the experience is unique to every individual, but it is one of the best experiences you could go through.
