Experience every possible aspect of Chinese culture!
I'm currently an undergrad at the University of Pittsburgh studying Chinese and Political Science, and I'm in China for the year to study Chinese language. I have a great interest in Asian culture from many different countries, especially the big three, China, Japan, and South Korea--although Thai food is definitely my favorite food! I'm originally from the D.C. area, born and raised, and started studying Chinese 3 years ago.
At home in the States, I spend a lot of time studying, going out with friends, and participating in Mock Trial, so if there are any fellow Mockers out there or anyone with an interest in the American legal system, I'd love to talk with you. I also listen to a lot of kpop and can talk about manga at length as well (not an anime fan though).
Here in China I spend most of my time exploring Beijing and its many interesting street food carts and restaurants, speaking Chinese with the èå¹´äºº in front of my building, and (of course) studying. This is my first time in China so I'm really excited to find my way around new parts of the country!
I'm still a student, so now I'm just focused on my studies and having a good time before graduation. I'm a very open-minded person--I absolutely believe in live and let live. I think every time you meet a new person is an opportunity to expand your worldview, and enjoy making friends all over the globe :)
Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing
None yet, but I'm on my way!
Exploring new clubs and bar scenes
Exploring new parts of cities
Nature walks and hiking
Trying out new restaurants, especially Thai and Korean food
Doing things I've never done before (vague, but accurate!)
- political science
Morceaux de musique, films et livres
Big kpop fan, but I also like a lot of American alternative such as The Hush Sound, Eisley, etc. I actually love pretty much any kind of music (excluding most rap and country)
I'm a big reader, especially of romance novels and manga, but I've also read a lot of classics (Dorian Gray and The Sound and the Fury) and enjoy talking about literature. I also try to read the Washington Post every day.
I'm a big movie fan and will watch just about everything, although romantic comedies are not my favorite genre.
Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue
I went snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef in Northern Australia--it was absolutely gorgeous!
