HOK #33: Elly Dumouchel


Meet Elly Dumouchel.

“Originally I am from Petawawa, but I came here to attend Algonquin College to take Event Management. After I graduated I moved into Westboro because I worked in the area at a local outdoor store. I am using my skills learned at college by hosting events at the store I work in. I run sales, and film festivals and events out at a lake in Carp.

I love to paddle in a canoe and go on trips. The longest trip I’ve been on was a week long on the extended Petawawa River with my dad. On that trip, we were fishing and I caught a large mouth bass. The bass had eaten a squirrel, and the squirrel wasn’t digested, so it was still in the mouth of the large mouth bass. It was pretty crazy… you opened its mouth and you could see the head of the squirrel.

I’d love to go to New Zealand or the Patagonia area of Chile and Argentina. I live my life by the mantra: ‘Love it all: good days, bad days, and everything in between.’ Just love it, that’s life.” 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.
