  • Description

    Hey I am Carmen, I was born and grew up in Germany, but my parents are from HongKong/Malaysia.
    I live in Darmstadt Germany, studying Sinology and musicology, but first I want to enjoy this life.
    So I am really active in cultural events and arts. I do have experience playing theater, organizing open air get togethers, furthermore I draw with mixed media, do handcrafts like ceramics and enjoy doing music ( I have a piano, organ... at home in germany).
    For now I am traveling alone in Hong Kong and I want to explore South-East-Asian Nature, Culture.
    I am particulary interested in alternative/ecoresponsible/organic/non-commercial Lifestyles here in Asia and how the community is or can adapt to it,
    because I can see my family here in Hong Kong live really unhealthy, physically and mentally....
    I want to understand myself and my identity through this experience.
    To my person, I am always curios about everything in this world, straight forward, lots of positive engery with an optimistic mindset.
    Really easy to get along, I like to work with many people together on one project, but also enjoy my time being alone and thoughtful. Peaceloving/ harmony in need!
    Also Confident and can navigate fast in a new environment.
    I am active and love outdoor sports, like cyling, moutainbiking, swimming, hiking....
    or bouldering, yoga and meditation inside. Never too picky to get my hands dirty or to do physical work.
    I enjoy having true face to face encounters, being fearless; outside together; take inspiration and learn from each others and our surrounding; listening to good music selctions and just being happy, easy and having fun with everyone and anything!
    Just ask, if there are any questions remained!
