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.

Samira is a Vancouver model who recently moved to Montreal. She spends most of her time creating music and drinking Vietnamese drip coffee.

“My dad lost me in Canada’s Wonderland one time when I was 7 or 8 years old. While he ran around looking for me all over the park I went to the security desk and asked them to page him. My dad bought me a dozen Timbits so I wouldn’t tell my mom but I ended up getting so sick from the sugar she had to take me to Children’s Hospital. We still make fun of him for it.”

“Life will beat you down to your knees constantly and thats ok, the important part is to always stand up. My mother taught that to my sister and I and its helped me get to where I am today.”
