Why I’m on Couchsurfing
human relations are amazing. Meeting new people who have lived different lifestyles in different cultures will teach you many things and will give you a great load of experience. On the other side, i've been studying tourism and i really want people from all around to world to know about Iran.

Music, Movies, and Books
I've always been a book worm. No matter where i'm going, there's always an unread book in my bag. I used to read christian bobin's works alot. He was my favourite french author when i was a teenager.
When i was a kid, i used to love science fiction books such as the lord of the rings. darren shan's series were my favourite irish books.
Since i was 13 years old i have been enthusiastic about philosophy and i read sophie's world by jostein gaarder, the history of philosophy and the pleasures of philosophy by will durant at that age. As i grew up i kept on reading but my favourite areas changed to ancient histories, geography and ancient persian poems by Hafez, Sa'adi and Ferdosi. I had been working on these poems while i was a radio announcer at 'Radio Namayesh'
Well i can't live a day without listening to music. I was in my early teens when i realised i'm madly inlove with Rock music! Linkin park, archive and anathema were my favourite bands. I still love Rock music but nowadays i'm feeling a kind of tendency towards electronic music and Techno.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Being a Solo female Traveler in an Islamic Country in which women’s independence is not so normal, is one of the amazing things i have done in my life. I have fought with many wrong cultures of my country n i had been playing with fire, following my dreams. i have been accused of many unfair things as i was trying to empower women of my own kind. and i have even been arrested and sent to jail as i was exploring my own country for no reason. It was tough and stressful but i‘m still proud of the things i have done in my adventures.
