Made it to the infamous Spirit Island 😍 Who would you choose to canoe 28km with? 🛶 @tourismjasper#tourismjasper
Thank you guys for 9k!! We're so close to 10,000 ❤️ lots of exciting things coming, including a MASSIVE giveaway!
=====@masonunrau and I started our canoe trip at midnight and got there near 4AM. We took a nap in the canoe for a cold hour, then proceeded to shoot blue hour till sunrise 😅 And don't even ask about the ride back 😴
Surprisingly, we were the only people there. Not a single being joined us for sunrise despite this gorgeous view...Except a black bear 🐾

What this inspiring lady said hit home. It’s a reminder that whether we want it or not uzokwama uri umurundi.
It doesn’t mean you can’t adopt another culture, but you can NEVER eradicate the foundation of what makes you who you are.
It hit home personally, why?
Because as a young adult I feel the pressure to seem like I got shit figured out. Meaning you know who you are, what you want and where you’re going. But when you’ve been robbed of your roots or hiding from them or trying to get rid of that background, it becomes easy to lose yourself, since you never knew who you were in the first place, or you never dared to own it.
BWW helps me tap into the connection I have been rebuilding with being UMURUNDIKAZI . Through BWW, my hopes of what could be done for the country are revamped, the feeling of doing something positive for my fellow Burundians in Canada or elsewhere is always fulfilling. It’s been a greatly appreciated learning process.
And on that note, I’d like to thank Sandra (@molovfighter ) for her words, thank you for elaborating on what most of us have gone through but don’t talk about. It’s a reassuring feeling to know that you’re not the only one. - @myrinthia ..
Qu’est ce que ça veut dire pour toi, KUBA UMURUNDI?
