HOK #24: Sara May


Meet Sara May.

“I’ve lived in the Ottawa area for the past 13 years, 12 of those years in Hintonburg. I love that this area is very unique, and locally sustainable. The arts and culture of the area appeals to me and I can get everything I need here…

At 21 years of age, I never thought I would be able to raise a child, but here we are 17 years later, and I didn’t break him. I love my son’s compassion. He makes me smile. I worry less about being on time now then I did back then.

I like to live my life by the motto ‘Kill them with kindness.’

Before I die, I’d love to go to Malta, buy and live on a lake house, and see a woman as Prime Minister for longer than six months. If I ever won the lottery, I’d open an animal rescue on a ranch and spend my days with those animals.”

Humans of Kitchissippi is a special street photography project designed to introduce readers to some of the people who live, work, and play in Kitchissippi. Each instalment of HOK contains three elements: a photo, a name, and a quote from the subject that reveals a little bit about who they are. View our growing collection of humans right here.
