What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just started a graduate program in international affairs at Columbia. Before that, was working on apolitical stabilization initiatives. Beyond that, trying/failing to find a healthy work/life balance, exploring Sufism, having fun and hopefully extending a bit of kindness to those I encounter in life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Anything and everything! I suspect I have mild ADD. My thoughts are either driven by questions related to immediate situations or large-scale philosophical issues.

Having said that, I am currently deciding whether I eat foul or porridge for breakfast.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If your Friday is typical you really need to shake things up a little.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often leave the country without telling anyone. This has caused several problems in the past. I am working on it.
