About Viva Vancity


Vancouver has been ranked consistently as one of the best cities to live in the world. Surrounded by water and lush greenery, this beautiful city has mountain ranges and spectacular skyscrapers posing as its backdrop. There are not many places in the world where one would be able to sail, play golf and even go on a mountain hike throughout the year.

The varying natural landscape of this beautiful city mirrors its incredibly diverse population. Vancouver has a wide variety of festivals and events that represent a broad spectrum of arts and culture. With everything from food and music festivals to sporting events, there is always something happening in Vancouver.

After spending 3 years in the Czech Republic and a year in California, I decided to move to the spectacular city of Vancouver to become an Event Manager. I am passionate about my career because it allows me to be a part of the community through various events and encounters. One of my main attributes is that I strive for excellence not only as an Event Manager but in all elements of my life.

Elaine is a Singaporean girl who fell in love with Vancouver while pursuing a BA in Sociology and a History Minor at UBC. She now calls this beautiful city home, much to the dismay of her parents (who have since semi-replaced her with an adorable golden retriever called Gus.) Her interests include food, coffee, photography and exploring new places. She also has a growing appreciation for hockey and timbits.
