Lady Divine Tugade (@uhmlady) is a natural both in front of and behind the camera. “I’m not very camera shy,” says the 19-year-old fashion blogger and photographer, “but styling and capturing individuals is definitely something I love!” Lady Divine moved from Quezon City in the Philippines to Edmonton, Alberta, with her family when she was just 1 year old. “Alberta is absolutely beautiful,” she says. “I can’t even explain the rush you can get hiking up mountains in Jasper, Banff and Canmore.” In her off-blogging hours, Lady Divine likes to spend time with her neighbors and friends, and especially appreciates the range of people she meets in her city. “I love the diversity here,” she says. “Not only in ethnicity and background, but in the types of individuals you meet and their crafts.” This story is part of #🇨🇦❤️ a new series celebrating people all across Canada.

Foreign news correspondent Sune Engel Rasmussen (@suneengel) has his #eyeson Afghanistan, a place he says is teeming with stories. “Afghanistan has, to some extent, dropped off the news radar,” he says. Sune is working to bring it back. Sune, who is Danish, arrived in Afghanistan in 2014 after three years of living and working in Iran. “I knew the Persian language and had a great interest in the region,” he says. Though he lives in Kabul, he tries to travel to other parts of the country, such as Helmand Province, at least once a month to understand the conflict happening outside of the capital city. “Afghanistan is an immensely fascinating place to report from, and every day offers new surprises about the country,” he says. “Afghans are generous with their time and their stories, and I feel fortunate to be able to listen to them and to experience this country at a crucial time in its modern history.” Photo by @suneengel

Many photographers seek out the light, but for Brooke Shaden (@brookeshaden), the most interesting aspects of human nature are in the dark. “I see a lot of beauty in the things I find dark and scary,” says the Arizona-based fine art photographer. “I’ve always been a joyous person, and I find that to be a little boring when you’re telling stories. I think that’s why I’m compelled to create dark imagery.” And yet Brooke also shines light into dark corners with The Light Space, a school in India she co-founded to teach photography to survivors of human trafficking. “I was doing a workshop for women who had been kicked out on the street because they’d gotten too old. They were so shy, but when they got the cameras in their hands? I’ve never seen people laugh so hard,” she says. “I want to help people see beauty in the darkness in their lives. They’re going through hard times, but see the beauty in that.” Photo by @brookeshaden

Cars, a microwave, bread — these are all items that professional doodler Sam Cox (@mrdoodle) has used as a canvas. In other words, nothing is safe from a doodle: “As long as it’s got a clear, blank surface, then I’ll draw on it,” says the 23-year-old from Kent, England. Sam regularly works at his craft as a freelance artist for 14 hours per day, during which time he runs through two pens. In addition, he fills a 100-page sketchbook with doodles every two weeks. “I want to take the whole idea of me living in a doodled world as far as I can,” he says. “Ultimately, it’d be amazing to have a whole town of doodles.” Watch our Instagram story now to see how Sam’s doodles come to life.

Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) has many titles under her belt — actress, Miss World 2000 winner, philanthropist — but her original career aspirations had her heading toward a very different field altogether: “I was studying to be an aeronautical engineer,” she says. “But fate took me on another exciting journey!” Born in Jamshedpur, India, Priyanka lives “in a creative shuffle” between Mumbai and New York City, and despite her busy schedule, she still finds time for family and “long walks with my li’l doggie, Diana,” she says. “In my personal life, I am most proud that I’ve been able to take care of my family. Professionally, I want to keep challenging the status quo, and exploring all forms of my creative expression.” Photo by @priyankachopra
