Kiera , Female, 31yrs

Looking in: Midwood, Fort Greene, Crown Heights, Long Island City, Astoria, Flatbush, East Flatbush, Park Slope, Morningside Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick, Harlem, Greenpoint

Hey there! I am Kiera, 31 years old from Toronto, Canada. I am a graduate student studying anthropology with a concentration in transnationalism and immigration. I am also currently involved in research and field work with the CCA programme that assists asylum seekers and refugees with work, citizenship, housing, etc. I love my work— helping people attain access to resources that will gradually improve their lives and their status whether it is here in the US, the UK and/ or Canada. A part from my studies, I enjoy riding my bike, running, making art and music, reading, learning languages, connecting with people, and cooking. Personality wise, I am reasonably social, open, supportive, respectful, and ethical. Not to mention, there are times when I do feel socially maximized but, I will always let others know that in a way that is respectful and thoughtful. Even though I value getting to know my roommates and spending time with them, I am also respectful of their privacy and space. I value roommate relationships that are, supportive, genuinely kind, uplifting, transparent, sagacious, and ethical. Another big plus for me is to reside in a space with others who are socially, legally, and creatively engaged. What would sharing your fridge with me be like? -Full of fruits, Icelandic water, yoghurt, greens, fresh fish, green smoothies, good ol Canadian maple syrup, homemade jerk spices and some tasty fusions. My part of the cupboard... -Smell of lavender leaves, filled with loose leave teas, La Colombe coffee beans, seasonings and spices, and molasses. When you hang out with me... - I think would be fair to let you all arrive at your own conclusions about that! If my door was ajar what music would you hear playing? -Jazz, World Music, Ska, Instrumentals, Ambient and African drum melodies mostly. What would my room smell typically like? -Lavender or Clean Linen. What would the night time be like with me? -You will hear nothing but pages turning followed by an occasional sigh, some yawns and light chuckles (some of the readings start to become redundant and humorous after a while). Then there are occasional quite midnight tea parties in the kitchen. Mornings are... -I am just physically awake. Do I need to say more? You would find from my bookshelf... -Claudine Rankine. Derek Walcott, Jamaica Kincaid, Anthony Appiah, Pramoedya Ananta Toer, Amie Cesaire, Franz Fanon, Foyder Dostoevsky, Kobo Abe, Kenzamburo Oe, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jose Marti, Octavio Paz, Roberto Bolano, Garcia Lorca, Fernando Pessoa, Zadie Smith,Phillip Roth, William Faulkner, E.m Forester, John Keats, Sylvia Plath, Charlotte Bronte, Virginia Woolf, James Baldwin, Ralph Ellison… just to name a few :) Thank you for reading and looking forward to meeting ! Thank you kindly— Kiera

Like most people, I'm just looking for nice roomies at a decent price in a safe hood. I'm cool with 420, as long as it's not fogging up my own room all the time. I am not down with cigarette smoke in the house at all though (unless you're willing to keep it from escaping your room with a towel under the door or something). Thanks for reading!  :) :) :) Ash

I like to keep a clean place for all purposes considered. I could be looking for a 3 month situation or something longer if the fit works well. The budget listed above is my personal cost $3,000/mo). I’m flexible on most things including this price if the property warranted it. I’d prefer not having more than one roommate unless the place was large enough to accommodate. The only basic requirements are the place has some type of cable (directv, fios, spectrum, etc) with a solid broadband connection and centralized heat and air condition. I’m fine with a male or female roommate as long as we click. Feel free to ask me anything and I’m happy to answer.
