About Me


Learning about NGO work in Brazil!


I grew up in Delhi and lived there till I was 16. After that, I went to an international school called United World College for two years. My time there was absolutely amazing - probably the best long-term experience of my life so far. Following those two years, I studied (BA) in the United States and have recently moved to Rio to work with a couple of NGOs.
I am interested in philosophy, politics and futbol and am a recreational musician (I play drums, guitar and tabla). Traveling and learning about other people and cultures (much as they are a cliche on this website) are things that I am extremely interested in, and absolutely LOVE doing!



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to Couch Surfing.. trying to use it for the first time to meet people in Rio de Janeiro. If I was living in my own place, I would definitely list a couch, but as things are, I do not even have a place, let alone one that might be all mine!
