Join Couchsurfing to see Rijas ’s full profile.
In community volunteer, passionate on socializing with wide range of diversity and culture. Moreover, the enthusiasm to connect people with different perspectives.
Travelling, opened up a significant space for me to understand and to acknowledge different aspects of life. More than exploring attractions, it's indispensably important to understand social and cultural life of the people.
Key values i realized is that, there's nothing specifically right or wrong , the important factor is to respect and accept the values and the viewpoints from another's lense.
Let's join hands to create platforms of inclusiveness beyond the borders ❤️
In terms of traveling, I often prefer the locations with festival's and social gatherings. After the long Covid break, next stop is at Goa for IFFI between 16th - 24th January.
Afterwards I'm planning for International film festival of Kerala, as the event is happening in in 4 venues, I'm gonna go for Kochi and Trivandrum. Date is in mid February.
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.
