HUANG WEI

One never knows where in the world you are calling when you call for technical support. It could be a call centre in India or a basement around the corner.

But those who called Huang Wei in July, would be calling a cell phone in Inner Mongolia! Here Wei stands on a highway in the northern Chinese province, illustrating how vast and flat the landscape is.

From Beijing, Wei escaped the crowds for a time to enjoy the peace & quiet of the vast grasslands of Inner Mongolia.

SVELTLANA YANINA

From Moscow With Love! 
Svetlana was born in Moscow, Russia and came to Canada in December 2009 as a visitor. She loved it here so much that she now calls Canada her home. "...and now it is 2015, and I'm still here and I love it."

Svetlana's far away brown eyes and Russian accent melts one's heart on a cold winter day. It did for her partner Ben who was featured two days ago on The Hello Project.

She recently left her job as a legal administrative assistant to pursue a career in freelance photography.

SVETLANA FUN FACT: Beware dog owners, Svetlana is a random dog hugger! She loves to give hugs to dogs she meets on the streets!

DESMOND

Most definitely scoring an 11 on the cuteness quotient, one year old Desmond is a head-turner eliciting ooo's and ahhh's from everyone he meets. Seen here in an old pickup truck at Toronto's Distillery District, he patiently waits for his photo shoot to end!

Originally from Joyfull Puppies, a breeder in Cambridge, Ontario, Desmond is a Cockapoo (cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle). Desmond is no stranger to social media with over 1,000 followers on Instagram! His Instagram name is @thedailydesi 

DESMOND FUN FACT: He is a Kleenex monster and sock stealer extraordinaire keeping his two human companions very busy and entertained.

BEN ROFFELSEN

With the chiselled look of a Viking conquerer, Ben Roffelsen is always observing scenes around him with an eye to composition. Always, a camera in his satchel, Ben loves the streets of Toronto and the photographic possibilities everywhere.

Originally from Chatham, Ontario, he moved to Toronto in 2007 for more opportunities in his field of design and digital marketing. Working with Cossette Communication, he mainly works the Telus account - ironically, a company that has built its business on clients saying, Hello”!

An artist at heart, Ben’s interests range from drawing, cartoon illustration, painting and watercolour to photography and design. Its a good thing he works for a creative agency where his talents can flow.

Unable to sit still for long, his wandering spirit feeds into his Fun Fact:

BEN FUN FACT: “I’m a closet geek” he admits with a laugh. He is a sci-fi fan who loves Dr. Who and all things Star Trek. Of the various roles he could choose, he would choose that of a captain. “I’d love that kind of freedom, to point to a star and say, ‘Go that way.’ "


But for now, he is content to explore the city and hopefully, discover a place no man has gone before!
