I was sick of TV’s gross misrepresentation of who is “real” in Vancouver. Real to me is someone who does what they love and keeps doing it. When I walk through this city I see people who live this out daily. They may dress wacky and sound crazy, but they are working and living with passion. They’re not perfect, and they don’t try to be. They are unapologetically real. These are the people who inspire and intrigue me. These are the people of Vancouver, the ones whose stories deserve to be told.
