Meet Surrey Girl, Ally Matos

Photographer, Videographer + Blogger-  AllyFotogafy Media Co. + Blog Grew up in: Whalley | Surrey is a beautiful, growing city. It keeps evolving and is so beautiful. I travel a lot with my work and the cities I have seen that are described as run down are actually that; Surrey gets called similar things and is looked down on, and yet there is so much good here. There are awesome shopping malls, parks galore, and the multiculturalism is just so beautiful. It is also much more affordable to live in Surrey than elsewhere in the Lower Mainland. My studio is...

Meet Surrey Girl, Steph Hassell

Co- Owner of Violet + Ruby Grew up in: Whalley | I’m proud to be from a place that four generations before me lived, I went to the same high school as my dad and my grandfather – I’m not sure many people can say that! My favourite thing about growing up in Surrey was the sense of community. Whalley was really great for that – everyone had a connection to everyone else, people looked out for each other, families helped each other. Surrey is a great place with lots to offer: commerce, education, recreation, lifestyle, etc.  Any large...

Meet Surrey Girl, Natasha Raey

Entrepreneur, Co- Founder SheTalks Global, Women’s Empowerment and Medical Marijuana Advocate Grew up in: Fleetwood | There’s a lot to be said for having a built- in family in your community, and a place that really feels like “home”. I live in Toronto half of the time, but nothing beats coming back to Surrey where I’m surrounded by greenery, fresh air, parks, the ocean, and space. I love the diversity and the small town feel, and I’m still friends with many people I went to highschool with. We don’t pretend our community is perfect.  No community is.  But we embrace...

Meet Surrey Girl, Kristy Powers

Photographer & Co- Owner of The Local Space Grew up in: Guildford | I love SO many things about this city! As an adult I’ve lived in the Clayton/ Cloverdale area for the last decade, but growing up, Guilford was my ‘hood. I literally lived across the street from the mall and it quickly became a place I frequented as a tween. First stop was usually The Bay makeup counter to put on some lipstick and then a frozen yogurt at Yogun Fruz, and I loved birthday parties at Stardust! Geographically speaking we are central to everything and you get...

Meet Surrey Girl, Jenifer Wiens

Stay at Home Mom, Co- Owner of Cedar Creek Fencing, Small shop owner Cozy Darling Crochet Grew up in: Birdland & Guildford | Growing up in the Whalley/Guildford area I knew what low income looked like. Even though our family wasn’t well off I knew that we had things that other families didn’t. My mom taught me that there is always someone less fortunate than you and there is always someone you can help. We ran a small food bank as a family and I remember being maybe 18 and talking to the building manager at a low income rental...
