Teach, Learn, Share

I can write you a song.

If you're curious, I can tell you all you want to know about my country and the idiotic conflict it's involved in since its first hour. I'm one of those who, on one hand, believe that peace is possible and necessary, but on the other hand, think that it's much more complicated than simply one side's fault, like some might presume.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook you a nice shakshooka, if you're not vegan.
