About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Eat well, drink better, go everywhere, dance like an idiot, finish my bucket list, experience all the wonders the world has to offer, enjoy life.

ABOUT ME

I'm Finnish-Nigerian. Bilingual.
Grew up in Helsinki, but oh boy did our parent's make sure we got a good dose of African in our upbringing.
Have a gazillion relatives, am a fan of loud music, nurture a love for people, and like to talk.
I mean, really like to talk.
Enrolled to an international school all my life, so my friends are in and out of the country, and so am I.

I'm good-natured, broad-minded, fun-loving, well-mannered, (must admit to a certain degree of whimsicality of nature from time to time though), and sometimes if I really concentrate I say things one could even describe as "humorous".

Oh, and my vice and indubitable downfall is pie.

PHILOSOPHY

Love, live, laugh - you're on a grand-adventure.
Every single day of your life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Planning to Interrail all the way to Istanbul with my mate Aleksandra this summer, and hope to be fortuitous enough to find a few comfy couches to crash and interesting people to meet.
I would be thrilled to show my city around to anyone who's interested. (: Helsinki is a wonderful place, especially during the summer; the people are charming, the city lively, and the things to do and cool locations to visit innumerable. If you wish to experience Helsinki to the fullest, I would love to be your guide and hangout.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Just started, so I guess that adds up to completely and utterly non-existent.
Excited, nevertheless.

Interests

Eating, travelling, shopping, drawing, dancing.
Photographs, literature, cocktails, tattoos, sociology, snowflakes, street-wear, psychology, skinny-dips, pearls, surprises, journeys.

I also think I can cook, but there seems to be some general disagreement in that subject.

Music, Movies, and Books

Pathology, Crash, Pretty Woman, Chronicle.
Sucker for White Collar and Misfits (series).

Music, though one. Two song favorites at the moment:
Afterglow by Thecrookes
Attracting Flies (Baauer Remix)by Aluna George
Can't Hold Us by Macklemore x Ryan Lewis

Books, also hard. No favorites, but "Lolita" by Nabokov is kick-ass, so's Stieg Larsson's "Millenium"-trilogy and Hesse's Steppenwolf.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn everything about everything, love a challenge, and am not afraid of failure.

I have danced since the age of six. I do not attend class regularly anymore, but my main subject of 12 years was contemporary dance, but I also did several years of street and ballet, along with a plethora of other things. Even managed to sneak in some Irish dance and tango in there somewhere.
