“Study me as much as you like, you will not know me, for I differ in a hundred ways from what you see me be. Put yourself behind my eyes and see me as I see myself, for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.” – Rumi.

I was born in Ukraine, but have been based in Beirut since 2000. It is no doubt to me that I am more than what I appear to be, I am deeper than my body, deeper than the way I dress, and even sometimes much deeper than what I speak. Hippie at heart.

I am easy-going, confident and brave. I say what I need to say. I do not allow any circumstance or situation shape me. I am also highly adventurous, always looking out for a lesson out of every experience.

Obsessed with self-development, growth, happy moments, wine and cats.
Sarcastic, confident, ambitious and witty.
Excited to share reflections, ideas, opinions and just simply blab about stuff…

Val.
