About Me

CURRENT MISSION

go back home, then listen and learn

ABOUT ME

*Hi all! I've been swamped with surfing requests these days (avg. 9/day), and I hate to have to decline most of them. I am settling into a new job and traveling around myself, so It is unlikely I will be able to host you these days. PLEASE, request stays ahead of time! That's the only way I'll be able to accommodate you (min. 2 weeks ahead of time) ;)

I work at a minority-rights NGO in Prague as a coordinator of educational programming for kids from socially excluded families. I also teach English, dance and sing, and write my humble "feminism-translated" blog to re-articulate my beliefs in the new context I suddenly find myself in.

I've spent last 5 years living in 5 different places (In Bosnia, Kosovo, the US, Russia and occasionally also home, in the Czech r.), loving every second of it, but, after all, i like having somewhere to store all my boxes of photos and someone to show them too and take with me next time.

I am a traveller who gave preference to opportunities over roots and who now pays the price. I'm re-discovering my own city and people in it, so come and we can be foreigners here together.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in knowing nothing, i believe in respect and love and I've chosen uncertainty over illusions and incomplete explanations.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Now that I have a place to myself again I'm excited to give back to the community.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted and surfed before, as well as participated in the Prague Couchsurfing community events when I was here for a bit in 2011.

Interests

individual experiences,perspectives and stories, social (dis)order & activism, race & gender, mediation, community building and development, conflict resolution, minority issues (ethnic minorities issues mainly), feminist thought, critical race theory, environmentalism, DIY and crafts, photography and film

Music, Movies & Books

Films that are original, playful, (thought?)provoking and make me wonder about them long after the last credits are gone (Lars Von Trier especially), perhaps like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8-ZD7O0udQ&feature=related or like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ik3qg3k7oPs

Tuvalu (V.helmer), Persepolis, Breaking the Waves, Le Scaphandre et le papillon, Les Choristes, Amelie (clasique), The Hours, Europa, Antichrist, Dogtooth,..Lars Von Trier is my hero.

Music that makes me tap my fingers, swing and wish I could dance a little better, perhaps a little like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfVk6259K74&feature=BFa&list=FLI-JsucEGUFA&index=22 Overall jazz, various crazy and interesting-to-listen-to stuff.. Regina Spector, Laura Veis, clasical music, Lamb, Stereolab, Le Futur Pompiste, Iron&Wine, Sufjan Stevens,.
