About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Well, currently I am in exile from my home in Cairo. I am pursuing options in Europe, but am open to ideas.

ABOUT ME

I am a student currently living in Cairo, Egypt. However, due to the political unrest, I am exiled to London for the moment. I love Egypt and the people there, and am both excited and saddened by the protests in my home. I am studying International Human Rights Law at American University in Cairo.

PHILOSOPHY

It could always be worse.

AND

Be present.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am VERY new to CS, but have heard only wonderful things about it. I am excited to be a part of it -- if only finally.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None - thus far.

Interests

I love music (especially indie ... what can I say? I used to live in Portland, OR). I am also quite interested in international politics and human rights in the Middle East.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

So many. One recent notable experience was the Everest Base Camp Trek. Never have I been MORE astonished simply by nature. And I've been astonished by nature TONS. Also, I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007-2008.
