Neighbours is an exclusive Vancity Buzz feature in collaboration with award-winning photographer, Matthew Chen, celebrating the diverse individuals that makeup up our community, one story at a time.


Meg is a writer, model, and student. She recently went back to school at Langara to bravely pursue her passion for literature.

“I try to now see life as a longer form story; mistakes need to be made to move it along. No one wants to read a novel with no conflict or character development. So when I make a mistake or something difficult happens, I tell myself its just part of my character arc.”

“I always stress myself out about not meeting the expectations I have in my own head and thus try to do as much as I can and push myself harder. Sometimes that has paid off, but mostly I’ve burnt myself out. There is very little you can achieve if you’re in a constant cycle of burnout.”
