A Year; A Broad

Hey! I started this blog to chronicle my year abroad in Geneva, Switzerland. It was originally supposed to be a travel blog, but it morphed into something more. So now it is mostly a blog about me, with pictures, recipes and sometimes things that I just find funny.
If you've stumbled upon this blog, and you know me, "hey! this is where I've been this year". If I don't know you, and you are somehow interested in my blog, I hope that you find what you were looking for.

“Tired of darkness” from the country’s frequent power outages, a team of teenage girls has developed solar-powered appliances and now sells them across Yemen, writes Nafeesa Syeed for Al-Monitor:

“In Yemen, we have abundant sun,” says Reem Rashed, 16, who works in the company’s human resources section. “We need to exploit solar power because it’s a favorable, free energy and it does no damage to Yemeni society.”

Pictured above: Wafa Al-Rimi, the 16-year-old CEO of the student-run company, Creative Generation in Yemen. 

Hell yesss

THAT’S SO COOL.


Badass.
