Meet Vancouverite, Diana Choi
Seymour met up with the co-founder and CMO of The Holistic Panda on World Mental Health Day (naturally Seymour’s ears perked up to the word Panda) to dig deep into this interesting character and Vancouverite-You-Need-To-Meet.
A secret that Vancouver is not yet aware of about you…
I have a black belt in Taekwondo, a form of Korean martial art.
A Van-RAIN-couver Must Essential in your closet
My water-proof jacket and duffle bag from RAINS. They keep everything dry!
Name your Vancouver 6-degree separation story
A friend I met through a college classmate knew Lady Gaga (before she became Gaga) when she performed at open mic nights in New York. Apparently she was already incredibly talented back then.
Favorite secret rendez-vous
La Fabrique St-George,shhh
Best Neighbourhood, please try not to be biased
I like Mount Pleasant with the diverse range of eclectic coffee shops, wine bars, and restaurants. I used to live in New York, and it reminds me of Brooklyn or the East Village.
You’re in Vancouver now Miss Diana Choi… you can be a little biased.
What’s this thing you do in Vancouver?
