About Me

I strive to live as authentically as I possible can.

I am a student who studies French and Arabic languages and Middle Eastern Studies.

I hope to travel all over the world.

I love the simple life.

I live my life with emotion, feeling and reality. I believe in love and I believe in the people. I want to see hope in humanity, because I feel as though we have lost trust in one another and tend depend on ourselves. I want to help others as much as possible while experiencing an authentic, spontaneous and in depth life. I try my best to not let the preconceived societal structures get me down.
