Meet Duchesse!

Hayi, my name is Duchesse!

I am UMURUNDIKAZI (Burundi) born and raised and I happen to live in one of the coldest countries, Canada.
Here are 3 things that you may want to know about me and if you don’t…just read it anyways.

1. Reasons for blogging
Simple. I like to tell stories and connect with people. This blog is sometimes a way to structure my thoughts(and believe me my mind can quickly become a roller coaster)and to give more sense to it.
Also, I like to share my opinions and beliefs from time to time. Sharing is caring, right?

2. Languages I can speak
Yes, that is another thing, I can talk and write in Kirundi(my mother tongue), French and English.Most of my posts are in English, which is challenging since I started to write in English only two years ago.Again…bare with me if it is not sufficient.

3. What I do for fun
Again, simple: I just call my friends or spend hours texting with them. Quite boring right?I know…but ask my friends why they all deciding to live far from me. Seriously, though, I am what you would call an “indoorsy” (I just googled apparently means someone who likes indoor activities, haha!)

Well, I think that is enough about me(at least for now πŸ™‚ ).I bet you don’t have any questions but if you do by any chance, just email me:

Till next time. I appreciate you!


  1. Hi Dee! I’m visiting from Suzie’s blog party and looking forward to reading more of your blog πŸ™‚ Where in Canada are you? I lived there for many years, just outside Toronto and then Vancouver and yes, it’s very cold!


    1. It is freazing out here you’re right.
      I live in the Niagara Region,you probably heard of it if you lived near Toronto.
      Where do you live now?Planning on coming back here?I would make sure you don’t get too!

      1. I lived in Burlington – we used to go to Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake quite a lot growing up – I even went on dates there in high school! Now I live in the UK, just outside London – it does get quite cold here in winter, but nothing like the minus 40 degrees I experienced while living there! Still, it’s an amazing part of the world and I would love to go back for a visit one day πŸ™‚


      2. I never visited Burlington though it is not so far from St Catharines where I stay.
        I am dying of visiting London some day too. Hey let me know when you come.No matter when that is.

      3. Thanks Dee, that’s very sweet πŸ™‚ I used to work with a girl from St Catharines, and I think I went there once or twice too. Hope you get to visit London one day, it’s a great city! xx
