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! 🙂
