Where are you originally from and what brings you to DC?

i am from kurdistan by way of california. activism brought me washington, dc. i run a small nonprofit. love what i do. consider myself blessed.

What languages do you speak?

i speak kurdish, turkish, and english. can decipher a bit of persian as well if i really put my mind to it. have, in addition, two years of latin and two years of russian under my belt.

What conversation topics would you like to have?

i am a political animal by profession, but literature, philosophy, film and art have their claim on me as well. i am easy. i can blend it. or so i think! :)


because i am a hybrid. i spent my teens in kurdistan and all my adult life in the united states. would like to think that i have taken the good from both and have become something like toyota prius in the process. am curious, love learning ...
