In Case We Don’t Know Each Other…

List-Style because I can’t be bovvered (…and want to have a British accent)

My name is Nesha Usmani.

I am twenty-three years old.

I am Pakistani-American.

I am Muslim.

I love writing poetry, painting, baking, sketching, blogging, reading, and taking photos.

Favorite books: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, all poetry.

I graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in English (British Literature) and a minor in Cultural Anthropology.

I thank God for what I have everyday, Alhamdulillah.

When I was younger, I used to dream of traveling and helping people as a volunteer. I’ve always wanted to get out and go on an adventure, and experience new and wonderful things. I might have romanticized it a little bit.

 Exactly one month ago I left my friends and family behind to begin my volunteer experience.It’s been very difficult at times, but worth it.  Currently, I’m in a small mountain village in Indonesia. I teach English to elementary school kids and I’m loving every minute.

I arrived exactly 1 month ago and I will be leaving in about 5 months, and I really hope every month will be more amazing than the last.

InshAllah, please read my previous posts and don’t be shy!!! COMMENT!  🙂

If you’re American and you’d like the same opportunity, please visit If you’re not American, please visit or Google your country’s ICYE branch (International Cultural Youth Exchange). Oh, there really isn’t an age limit. Everyone is young at heart!
