Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Fungai Mettler, I am a Zimbabwean based in Zurich, Switzerland since 2014 and enjoying it so. 

I believe in celebrating the differences that make people who they are. I also believe that in order to celebrate those differences, we must talk about them. We must also acknowledge that there is more that brings us together than that which sets us apart. 

Let us continue this journey together as I write about culture shocks and differences, love, travel and anything else that fits. I Hope You Dance is a platform for freedom, whoever you are, whatever your background, you are welcome and celebrated here.
