Vulcan Trek Station

Star Trek fans from all corners flock to the town of Vulcan, an hour and a half southeast of Calgary. Looking uncannily like a hovering spaceship, the Vulcan Tourism and Trek Station is staffed by the captain and crew of the Starship Enterprise, who are happy to join you in a photo shoot on the main bridge. They even have spare Star Trek costumes so you’ll feel like part of the crew.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
