ABOUT

Hello and welcome to UrgenKuyee.com! I’m Urgen Kuyee. I’m a humble and a hardworking nurse. I am also a freelance writer. I reside in Toronto and live a frugal life.I am in my 20’s, enjoying life and a very proud Canuck. I consider myself to be tetralingual and a huge fan of Toronto Public Library. I enjoy soccer and tennis. I support Liverpool F.C. I do hill sprints to stay fit and show off my majestic calves. I love nutella. I hate broccoli.

I started this website to help Canadians especially millennials and healthcare workers who may find it challenging to obtain information about personal finance. I enjoy reading and learning new things about personal finance. I heart (love) reading books. Period. Hence, passionate bibliophile is the title of this site. I get aroused when I get to spend my weekends at the library. Clearly, you can tell how exciting my life is. Now, I am aware personal finance can be dull and tedious. I ll do my best to make my content in this site entertaining and informative. Four of my blog posts have been featured on The Globe and Mail so far – EQ bank, HOOPP blog, Dollar-Cost Averaging and Interview with Jim Keohane, CEO of HOOPP which has generated over 6000 views. Thank you Rob Carrick.Plus, my blog about credit score was featured on Ellen Roseman‘s blog site.

Also, I have received a personal thank you letter from Deputy Mayor, Norm Kelly for taking part in the Council appointment process and my interest in civic life. I was mentioned in a couple of tweets by national reporters. I gave a five minute speech at Toronto City Hall in front of the mayor, the speaker, 43 city councillors, about 110 people in audience and the media (CBC, CP24, Rogers TV, etc). I firmly believe public speaking is the route to be more confident. Lastly, I would like to share my fav quote –  “He or she who is willing to be the most uncomfortable is not only the bravest but rises the fastest.” – Brene Brown
