Meet Surrey Girl, Samantha Lenz

Freelance Journalist & Blogger Growing up, soccer was my life. We spent a lot of time on the fields and it’s a bond that can’t be described. My favourite thing about growing up in Surrey were the friendships I formed as a child. I am proud of where I’m from because it’s where I grew up. I made memories, my life, my family. I like knowing that I have roots somewhere and that I can take my son back there and show him where I came from. A favourite memory of mine has to be the endless amount of...

Meet Surrey Girl, Monika Levarsky

Nursing Student & Behavioural Interventionist/ Respite Care Grew up in: Sullivan Heights | My favourite thing about growing up in Surrey was that I was surrounded by many parks and lived close to Crescent Beach. I always remember my childhood exploring new parks and enjoying the adventure that came along with it. I love that Surrey is very multicultural and everybody is accepted for who they are. I never feel out of place, no matter what part of Surrey I’m in; it makes me feel comfortable and feels like home. I’m proud to be from Surrey because it’s so unique....

Meet Surrey Girl, Piya Sandhu

Owner & Chief Curator of The Handpicked Home Spent the most time in: Cloverdale | We moved around a lot when I was a kid, but the longest we stayed in one place (and where I moved back to as an adult for a while) was Cloverdale. My family moved there the summer before grade 7 and when my brother and I took our first walk to my new elementary school, I remember being so stoked to see how amazing the playground was. I’ve been a kid at heart my entire life and still get excited to see a cool...

I am proud to be from Surrey, it is nothing to be ashamed of. I love the opportunity and diversity our city has to offer. I feel incredibly fortunate to have grown up in the area I did. I was very naive...

Blogger, Our Happy Place; Co- Founder, Captured in Squares Grew up in Newton | I took where I grew up for granted. As recently as a few years ago I didn’t appreciate it at all. But looking back and reflecting, I know I’m lucky to call this place home and I love where I live. Our family moved to Delta a few years ago, but I was born and raised in Surrey; it’s still home to me in many ways. The beauty of this place still catches me off guard and even though it isn’t perfect (but where is?), Surrey...
