About Me

For starters, I was born and lived aboard in Dubai for 18 years. Moved back to Egypt for Med school and currently I am a third year student. I like to think of myself as a sophisticated person (the result of various cultures intertwining in Dubai). Basically though, I am a self-improving, thrill-seeking, escapist.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to meet travellers, of all sorts! They are always enthusiastic and dynamic and I like seeing and living that!

However, me as a traveller, I love to indulge myself in cultures and I believe the best way to do that is by befriending locals. Whether we meet for dinner, or go for a walk at the park, I'll still be having fun. I am a learner by nature and I aspire to become a great psychiatrist one day, and I believe the best way to do so is to come as close as possible to various cultures (thus different mind-sets, experiences etc thus coach surfing). I am looking for inspiration not :D

Interests

Well first things first, cooking has always been an interest but I failed to develop it (and even start too) so if we cook together that's like a dream come true xD The same goes to history too.

Music is life, I listen to all sorts and of course I love to discover more and more. I like it when people attach music to experiences and emotions, it makes music all the more meaningful, leading to the final realisation that music could be your mode of emotional expression!

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to all sorts of music.

Inception, Gravity, Interstellar, The Adjustment Bureau to name a few favourites.

Games of thrones 💖
Team Flash!

Books are not really my thing but I started reading Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Scuba diving in the Red Sea! One hell of an experience! Personally, I am afraid of the sea, I swim very well, in fact I was team member of my school's swimming team but the sea is scaaaryy! This was me facing my biggest fear in life. It was a lifetime experience that I'd never forget.

Teach, Learn, Share

Being a certified trainer, I guarantee that I have a lot to share, right from self-confidence skills to empathy and emotional intelligence. Such topics are my strength points and I always tend to ingrain the basics in everyone I meet. Moreover, I am Med student... we will be spending hours talking about how beautifully crafted our bodies are!

Learning for me is a natural process, I try and soak as much information as possible and then sort them out, but I also like living the moment and being spontaneous. You see, whether we chat about politics or hairstyles, I always be there to learn and add to the conversation.
