About Me


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


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.


It could always be worse.


Be present.

Why I’m on 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.


None - thus far.


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.
