Meet Natasha Kyssa.
“I have lived in the Kitchissippi area since August 2014. Before that, I grew up and lived in the Glebe. I noticed that the things I loved about that area were disappearing. I love the Kitchissippi area because of its eclectic nature, its small businesses, its mixed population and its diversity. I love that it’s still a little rough around the edges in some places here. One of my favourite things about this community is that the Ottawa River and Gatineau Park are at my back door. I cycle in the park five times a week. Today I rode up to the Champlain Lookout and back. I like to go down to the river and hug it. I live my life by the mantras: Seize the moment! Seize the day! Get outdoors! Never stop exploring!” Collected by Ellen Bond
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.
