About Me


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.

"In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer." - Camus

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hosted in Imzir (Turkey) and Leipzig (Germany), will host in Kaohsiung (Taiwan), surfed all around Turkey, wonderful experience! And yeah - CS meetings all around the world!

A lot of great people, great stories. Life enriching!

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.
