experiencing world town
Writing about yourself is like dancing about architecture. Still trying my best: Half-German, half-Egyptian, full-human. I am studying Communication/Media with a focus on film and politics. I am queer, vegan, and interested in human rights and volunteer work.
Making movies, writing, reading, making songs, create.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Smelling the possibility of the day when getting up early in the morning. Playing an instrument for an hour, trying to figure something out and finally hitting or strumming the right note or chord.
