About Me

Young professional living in Chicago. Recently finished my Master's degree.
I really love singing and dancing, I'm very outgoing and outspoken. I love traveling and exploring new places. I do appreciate arts, I love wandering around museums studying paintings, exhibitions and the story behind them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Naturally, being very cautious I'd like to challenge myself to meet new people and learn to trust them. I think learning about a new country is something you can achieve only through its people. So I'm really curious to explore different cultures by meeting interesting people and relating to them.

Interests

I really love music, arts, enjoy performing and watching someone else perform, movies that make you think a little bit, learning languages.
I really love working out, almost as much as I love good food. I like active training such as kickboxing, enjoy working out in a gym, passionate about yoga.
I would love to learn to meditate some day.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a huge Beyonce fan! Being able to visit one of her concerts was a life-changing experience!
I really like movies that make you relate to the story, feel for the characters. I can appreciate a good comedy too. Recently very keen on Japanese literature.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I like to push myself to be more assertive and unpredictable.
I've visited San Francisco in summer of 2014 as it has long been my childhood dream. For that I had to work really hard and save up, so for me it was an achievement and a truly well-earned amazing experience!
Eurotrip in December 2015-January 2016 was another amazing thing I've done and it was also my first couchserfing experience. It was an eye-opening unforgettable trip that taught me a lot.
A trip to South East Asia in winter 2017 was an incredible testing experience. Enjoying it with friends, we learned a lot about self-reliance, and being resourceful.

Teach, Learn, Share

I truly believe that having conversation with someone can be an extremely inspiring experience. While losing connection being preoccupied with our phones sometimes I think we devalue the importance of a simple talk face to face. I truly learn a lot from conversations, I highly appreciate the wisdom people have to share.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can teach you how to cook some kazakh foods and a bit of Russian and Kazakh :)
