language barrier: The duo decided the best way to break down barriers was as simple as finding a pen pal, according to CBC. Sometimes it can be isolating when you move to a new place and there's a language barrier, said Sarah Martin, who works at the Duke Creative Collective. Inspired by a story about a Syrian newcomer, the Duke Creative Collective approached the local YMCA to find a way to make newcomers feel more welcome. I think that there's a lot of people in Saint John that want to welcome and they want to help, said Martin. The agency has printed hundreds of Valentine's Day-themed cards, which give Saint Johners a chance to tell newcomers about themselves and the city. But they didn't really have an avenue to do so.
