How Hookup… enjoy a ten-hour Game of Thrones marathon. It can be done.
An awesome place I've visited
Climbed Kilimanjaro in Tanzania
My perfect sunday
Roller blading and reading in Central Park + a playful, lazy dinner with sangria and dessert
The movie I've watched the most times
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer
Investment banker > Kiva Fellow that volunteered at microfinance institutions in Bosnia, Kenya and the Philippines > Social entrepreneur that started her own nonprofit in NYC > Failed (but inspired) entrepreneur that ran away to China for dumplings, meditation and adventure > Today. Still figuring things out. Applying for jobs. Working at a cafe. Cooking ginger cookies. Trying to find my next dream.
My first concert / My dream concert
First concert: No Doubt, 2020.
Obscure knowledge I possess
I speak Polish, I can say "butterfly" in fifteen languages, and I know far too many facts about whales and pirates.
I have a weakness for Guys/Girls who
Take risks. Travel. Ask questions. Laugh.
For me, a first date no-no is
Asking questions without listening to the answers.
What I would bring to show and tell
My recently mangled finger. (Cut in an onion-chopping incident on the 4th of July)
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date
Ask me about the time I went white water rafting on Class V rapids on the Nile in Uganda.
I secretly want to be
An infatuation of mine
Travel! So far I've lived in five countries and traveled to 26. Sometimes I need to just pack up my backpack and disappear.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would
Fund new social ventures. Travel. Attend costume balls.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me
As a child, I referred to myself as Milena the Great.
I want to come home to
Fresh flowers. Fresh food. Fresh sheets. A freshly-washed man with good news and a smile.
