Live, learn and have fun!
I was born in Taiwan and moved to the U.S. when I was five.
Upon graduating with a B.A. in Studio Art, I traveled as a Thomas J. Watson Fellow for 14 months around the world studying a textile art known as batik.
I am currently a graduate student at Yale University pursuing a dual degree in Masters of Architecture and Masters of Environmental Management. My dream is to help design cities that are good for people and the environment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
The friends/fellow couchsurfers I have met throughout my travels have truly shaped who I am and changed me for the better. I have learned and experienced something incredible from every couchsurfer I've met. My hope is to share this knowledge with other couchsurfers so that they can in turn share it with others. In this way, we will create a better, more peaceful world.
Couchsurfers are truly the most open-minded, interesting, generous and all around beautiful people on this planet. I cannot rave about this community enough.
Eating simple, healthy vegetarian meals. I love running and hiking - anything that involves the outdoors. I'm good at daydreaming - maybe too good. I wish I had more time for reading, playing the piano/viola and making art. Traveling and meeting new people is a priority.
- outdoor activities
Music, Movies, and Books
Just to list a few:
Atlas Shrugged, The Prophet, A Thousand Splendid Suns, Shantaram, Prodigal Summer, The Darkover Series, The Princess Bride, Legends of the Fall, Dirty Dancing
Anything that makes me cry!
