About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To contribute to world peace and sustainability

ABOUT ME

I like to travel meet new people. Interested in outdoor activities -not so much extreme- but rather the nature and chilled out, relaxing ones. I like to consider myself environmentalist, so keen on exploring places from where I learn different aspects of sustainability. Also interested in intellctual conversations, sports and competitions for fun.

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live, respect to all creatures and human beings.

We grow the more roads we travel and the more we share these roads with people. This is how we light the world (Adiele Basheer)
