About Me

I'm a intercultural enthusiast with an insatiable desire to learn from different perspectives of life.
Intercultural communication is one of the area that I'm pretty much passionate and learn about.

Couches surfing is an interesting platform to interact with people from diverse backgrounds, the unending curiosity about people and to embark on interesting conversations. Talking to strangers is such an intriguing process.

I'm open for all sort of connections, activities and adventures that provokes my adrenaline glands ✨
I'm lenient to left politics, orientalist views, I eat meat and I don't do yoga and mindfulness 🧘‍♀️

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe, Couch surfing is a verified social space to explore different landmarks across the globe. It's a opportunity to meet interesting human beings and to have meaningful conversations. Moreover, enhancing intercultural connections for a better inclusive world.


I felt it's intriguing and thoughtful process to volunteer with social organizations and local communities. It's an insight to learn about the Socio-economic, cultural aspects, as well as a learning process to keep updating myself.

I've volunteered with a NGO International Citizens Service (ICS). This was one of the thought provoking experience in my life. I stayed in a village of Rajsamand District in Rajasthan, India. The cross cultural experience with UK and Indian volunteer's made a remarkable change in my future journey.
