Join Couchsurfing to see Leyla’s full profile. It’s free!
My name is Leyla and I am a former Assistant Professor of TESOL, currently on a maternity leave. We moved to Zugdidi, Georgia from Turkey 2 months ago. I got my PhD in Foreign Language Education in the US and had been living there for 7 years prior to moving to Turkey.
My husband is Cherkess (Kabardey) from Nalchik, Kabardino-Balkaria. Our son was born in Turkey! I am passionately curious and very talkative. Cooking and traveling are two main obsessions of mine!
Leave the world better than you found it and always pass it forward.
