technology meets traditional
Darcy Boucher photographed at uOttawa’s Tabaret Hall.
One of the things I love about this project is the genuinely nice people I get to meet and photograph, including recent uOttawa grad Darcy Boucher who is now already running her own small PR boutique called Bowda. Darcy’s only been in Ottawa for a couple years and she says she loves how welcoming the city’s been. She’s had the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people on twitter, and then connect later in person at events – “I love how technology meets traditional in Ottawa, it’s just so seamless here.” The social media community in Ottawa is so organized and supportive which really helps Darcy’s new PR business. She of course loves more than just the social connectivity of our city – apparently she has a sweet tooth, so it’s not surprising she wanted to share how much she loves Ottawa’s super tasty and famous doughnut shop Suzy Q’s and the Cupcake Lounge in the Market! ;)

When I asked Darcy if there were any Ottawa gems she’d like to share, she told me besides the beautiful and peaceful beach out at Petrie Island in Orleans, she absolutely loves what the ladies over at Dress for Success Ottawa are doing – they help suit and prepare economically disadvantaged women for interviews and jobs. Such a generous and great community service!
