About Me




all about me.. i am a woman who slowly gets closer to academy. I am doing my master at UBCO in Kelowna. And this is why I am in Canada. I miss my country, Turkey, a lot. I can give lots of advices for Istanbul, and perhaps i can find couch for you even i am not there anymore. i am interested in women's studies in university. and i am also a theatre practitioner. i am doing theatre since my childhood. the first thing i am curious about a place is its theatre/performance scene! that's the way i understand a city, and feel it. i know it is hard, as theatre is not popular anymore as much as cinema. i am also into cinema and visual arts. i made films and planning to make more.


himmm.. i cannot say something ideal. but i would not go for a philosophy which does not have feminist inspiration. i also support environmentalist movement and independent networks against globalization (oil-zation)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have always enjoyed meeting new people and new countries. So, CS is a great opportunity to do that. I think I am also a good host, which is a good side of CS. Being part of an international network is a l ot fun as well. I strongly support this kinda communication.


i was hosted in Kelowna. It was a great experience. But unfortunately i did not host anyone yet. Just I wrote my ideas for some surfers about istanbul.


I already started to talk about it above. I like reading a lot. I enjoy the challenge of books I have never read before. I also like watching movies, mostly by auteur directors. Besides, I enjoy seeing films and documentaries by amateur directors. i like writing as well. and i enjoy discovering a city with its coffeeshops and little bookstores which always inspired me with people in them!
