Last year, University of Alberta student Jimmy Kang and several peers across Western Canada launched the “Pro Story,” a digital magazine profiling some of the most compelling initiatives and people across Western Canadian post-secondary institutions, though with a special U of A feel. As months progressed, the digital magazine continued to grow, with contributions from individuals such as former Edmonton Eskimos coach Kavis Reed and ATB Financial Chief Economist Todd Hirsch. The Pro Story momentum only increased with a sleek website relaunch and subsequent release of its first digital magazine issue, focusing on Edmonton entrepreneurship initiatives.
On the morning of April 7 2014, the Pro Story launched “Issue 002,” going by the name of Mental health matters. The website now provides a compilation of interactive online media (BEAUTIFUL, to say the least), statistics on University of Alberta mental health and interviews with leaders across the institution. Of note is that the Pro Story is one of Canada’s first websites to implement the “open spritz” technology, which allows readers to expedite their article-reading on the website.
