KPU alumnus shows we can all be superheroes

Wed, Jun 8, 2016

Metro Vancouver, B.C. - For his birthday, Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) alumnus Sean Bindra wished to show people around the region that we can all be superheroes.

Dressed head to toe as Superman, the bachelor of business administration in marketing graduate spent all of June 8 flying around town to bring smiles to people's faces.

His day started at Surrey's Scott Road Skytrain Station, where he wished transit commuters a wonderful day. Next was Richardson Elementary in Delta, where he brought gifts and positivity to students in kindergarten through to Grade 3. Bindra helped serve lunch at Delta's Kennedy Seniors Recreation Centre - which was celebrating 'Seniors Week', and topping off the busy day were visits to the BC Children's Hospital and the Canadian Mental Health Association, where Bindra donated $500 to each respective organization, and thanked staff at both for their contributions to community.

"I am very passionate about our community and giving back. My parents have lived a life in which they have been extremely generous in giving love and support to their peers. They have led by example and have taught me the importance of helping others. Therefore, I wish to do my part in giving back and helping others as well. For me personally, there is no greater feeling than the happiness you get from making others smile. I have always tried my best to put a smile on the faces of those around me and I wish to continue doing this for the rest of my life. Through their love, support, and always being good role models to me, my parents are my superheroes," said Bindra, whose birthday is June 9.
