PROFILE ABOUT ME

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find out how far one can go.

WHY I DO WHAT I DO.

My name is Nida and  I was born in the beautiful state of Colorado, however, I have traveled and lived overseas. I am what you call a Third Culture Kid (TCK). A great thing about being a TCK is being able to recognize a space which exists between the culture I am from and the cultures I have lived in and experienced. 

I was flying before I was crawling, taking risks and traveling to quench my thirst for the unknown. My desire to explore new cultures wasn’t the only thing but understanding people and looking for connections. Those connections were the tool for mutual understanding. 

I wanted to use my passion for sports, fitness and women empowerment to create a space for cross-cultural understanding. I am using this space to blog about my journey (currently as a PhD student) and topics that are important to me and weave in some aspects of my research. 

ENJOY!!
