Meet Kyle Ryc.
“I am originally from Burlington, Ontario, and moved to Ottawa to go to school in 2007 at University of Ottawa. I’ve lived in Westboro since December last year. I love that Westboro is a beautifully, tight-knit, colourful community, that has everything I want and I need a really good excuse to leave. I went to school for Health Sciences, and now I manage a local coffee shop.
“I love to travel, and I love especially to come home after travelling. I’m heading out to China in a few weeks, and I’m learning Chinese on my cell phone right now. I think the development of cell phones has made communication so much easier. I can Google it and find anything I want right now.
“If I could be the Prime Minister of Canada for one day, I would follow through on a commitment to fix Veterans Affairs Canada. I spend some time at the local legion and veteran affairs are something near and dear to my heart. They need to be taken care of.
“I think the world needs to talk more. There’s a lot of shouting but not enough discussion.” 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 collection of humans right here.
