    LIVING HOPE WITH HARJEET KAUR

    LIVING HOPE WITH HARJEET KAUR

    Once upon a time, in the year 2019, a young woman named Harjeet found her life taking an unexpected turn. She had been trying to conceive a child with her partner for several months, but their efforts were in vain. Confronted with the growing worry and doubt, Harjeet decided to seek out the help of a fertility specialist.



    It was in the sterile environment of the doctor's office where Harjeet's heart sank with the weight of the specialist's words. Her fertility had been compromised, and she had gone into early menopause. The news struck her like a sledgehammer, shattering her dreams of starting a family. Tears streamed down Harjeet's face as she struggled to process this devastating blow. She couldn't help but question if an earlier diagnosis could have preserved her chances of becoming a mother through egg freezing.



    As Harjeet grappled with the reality of her infertility, her journey took an even more harrowing turn. She found herself sitting in the bustling offices of the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary, surrounded by a team of medical experts. They outlined a plan of action that involved aggressive chemotherapy sessions every week throughout January and February 2020. The objective was to induce partial remission in preparation for a stem cell transplant.



    The weight of the upcoming battle pressed upon Harjeet's shoulders, but she refused to let it consume her entirely. She had always been a fighter, a resilient soul, and she was not about to let cancer defeat her spirit. Supported by her loved ones and the unwavering dedication of her medical team, Harjeet steeled herself for the road ahead.



    The chemotherapy sessions proved to be arduous and physically demanding. The toxic chemicals surged through Emily's veins, leaving her feeling drained, weak, and nauseous. The sight of her hair falling out in clumps only served as a stark reminder of the battle she was facing. But Harjeet persisted, finding solace in the knowledge that every session brought her one step closer to remission.



    Throughout the weeks and months of treatment, Harjeet confronted her mortality head-on. The uncertainty that loomed over her became a constant companion, accompanying her through each chemotherapy session. And yet, even amidst the fear, a glimmer of hope seeped through. She held onto that hope with all her might, knowing that it was the lifeline that would guide her toward the light at the end of the tunnel.



    The day of the stem cell transplant finally arrived, and Harjeet felt a mix of anxiety and anticipation. She lay in the hospital bed, her heart.

    COVER STAR - Luke Azevedo: One of the Visionaries Transforming Calgary's Film Industry

    COVER STAR - Luke Azevedo: One of the Visionaries Transforming Calgary's Film Industry

    Calgary Economic Development with Luke Azevedo. Our 12th issue is going National for June!

    .

    "Alberta's 2023 budget invests $335 million into the Film and Television Tax Credit, creating jobs and revenue across the province."

    .

    Story by I'm Here With.

    .

    One of the people Behind Alberta's booming film industry is Luke Azevedo, Vice President, Creative Industries, Operations and Film Commissioner. His leadership and dedication has helped propel the province of Alberta and the city of Calgary, into the global spotlight, attracting major productions that create investment and job opportunities. In our exclusive interview with Luke for our Chapters/Indigo/Coles distributed 12th issue, Luke shares his insights into the industry's growth. He energetically shared about his role in securing investments and the true essence of Alberta's film community, just before he flew to the Cannes Film Festival.

    .

    In 2007, Luke joined Calgary Economic Development (CED) as the Commissioner for Film, Television, and Creative Industries. Luke works with studios, government, unions & producers in Southern Alberta to facilitate and develop local projects and to attract new foreign film, television & digital media productions to Alberta. Before joining CED, Luke was the Director of the Creative Electronic Environment, as well as the Banff New Media Institute and the Acting Director of Literary Arts at The Banff Centre, where he developed and directed television and interactive media facilities and personnel. Before Banff, he was the owner-operator of VisionWorks Commercial Productions and worked with Hockey Canada through four Olympic Games as well as numerous Junior and Women’s World Championships. During this period Luke was also the broadcast liaison for the Calgary Flames hockey operations.

    .

    In 2023, Luke was elected to the Board of Directors of the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI), a global consortium of over 300 film commissions across six continents. As one of 10 board members, Luke is the sole city commissioner among country, region, and state commissions. In addition, Luke has been awarded the Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee Medal by the Province of Alberta, recognizing his work and dedication towards elevating not only Calgary, but Alberta’s, reputation as a global production center for the Creative Economy and for content creators of all platforms and genres.

    .

    In conclusion, Luke Azevedo's visionary leadership and inclusive approach have been instrumental in helping shape Alberta's thriving Screen industries. With a focus on global competitiveness, talent development, and infrastructure expansion, Alberta has become a sought-after destination for filmmakers, studios and streamers. Luke's commitment to accessibility and support has shattered misconceptions about industry leaders, inspiring individuals from all backgrounds to pursue their dreams in the Creative industries. By fostering a culture of inclusivity, learning, and active involvement, Alberta's creative sector continues to thrive and invites aspiring individuals to be part of its exciting journey.
