About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn as much about the people with whom I share the Earth and by extension, myself.

ABOUT ME

I really hate these things. The best way for you to get to know me is to talk to me, which you can do anytime. But here's me in a nutshell:
-Student
-Free spirit
-Feminist
-Adventurer
-Human

PHILOSOPHY

Live your life for yourself and no one else. Be kind, be empathetic, but when the dust settles, the only person that needs to be happy with your life is you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Considering my first surfing experience ended in a change of residence, I have only been able to surf! Once I get a place of my own, I will definitely start hosting!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My (two) couch surfing experiences have been spectacular! Staying in a hotel is lame. What better way to really, really experience a country than to live the way the locals do? To eat what they eat, to sleep where they sleep? It's amazing! I can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel. I don't miss them in the least bit.

Interests

Reading, exploring, lounging around and talking to friends.
Staying up to date on what is happening in the world is of paramount importance to me. There are people in the world dying, being destroyed by their governments- or other's. The least I can do as a citizen of a country that causes so many problems in the world is try to stay educated on what is happening. I get distracted by the commonplaces of daily life, but I always remember to come back and read something about some place in the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: just about any kind, although I'll admit I'd much rather be outside doing something as opposed to sitting watching a movie. When I do watch movies it's usually a documentary, or comedy.

Music: French, Arabic, Italian, and Spanish Guitar are my favorites.

Books: I love to read, it's one of my favorite activities . Mostly non-fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

You want just one?

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not a good teacher, but I'm open to learning just about anything!!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm clean and courteous and do my best to respect all people's cultures and learn what I can from them. I can help with English if you want someone to practice with. I also am very good at staying in contact with people abroad so if our time together is fun you've got yourself a good ole American friend :)
