I had the pleasure of sitting down with Blake Loates, the artist behind the art installation, We All Believe in You (WABIY). WABIY is a project that captures portraits of people with mental health issues, on display at the Art Gallery of Alberta, May 2nd, 2016, 6:30-9:00. Open to the public, at no cost. The goal of the project is to celebrate the people who participated in the photos and celebrate the strength of the participants.

Sonny Sekhon is a man of many talents, but his super power rests in his knack for connecting with his community. Not only is he the general manager of one of Edmonton’s top menswear retailers, he is a member of two (soon to be three) fundraising boards, and plays for four ball hockey teams within the city. While it’s easy to praise the man for his entrepreneurial skill and philanthropic endeavor, Sonny is quick to credit his father’s resilience and humility for shaping who he is today. We were very lucky to have a moment to catch up with Sonny and chat about everything he has on the go, and why he’s proud to call himself an Edmontonian. Thank you, Sonny!
