About Me

ABOUT ME

I am a down-to-earth individual who loves nature and enjoys social interactions. I have add opportunities to live in major cities in the US (New York, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia) and I also enjoy tourism (though my opportunities for that have been limited due to academic or work related commitments. I am a mature, honest, warm and friendly individual. I usually go out of my way to make my guests comfortable. I will not give bad advice to anyone and I try to exercise sound judgment in every situation I am in. I am also super low-maintenance and anyone who has hosted me has found me to be an excellent guest.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I anticipate more opportunities to travel (both for fun and for work) and my hope is that through Couchsurfing I can accomplish my goals while staying in budget -- I would like to reciprocate the community's welcoming stance by giving back to the community and opening up my place for other guests.

Interests

I love playing football (soccer). I am a liverpool fan and am pretty sad that my team has not been doing well for quite some time now.
I enjoy the outdoors. Love hiking and biking. I enjoy watching almost all sports. I also like to play board games :)
I am also an avid reader of opinion columns about US presidential politics.

Music, Movies & Books

Some of the movies/books I have enjoyed watching/reading:
God Father
The Great Gatsby
To Kill a Mockingbird
City of God
The Motorcycle Diaries
Lord of the Rings

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I won the award for being the top ranked cyclist for Hubway (a bike rental program launched in Boston -- it is like Zipcar but for bikes). I can safely say that I have biked to most places in Boston on my Hubway bike.
I almost drowned once in Puerto rico trying to see fish (i was snorkelling without knowing how to swim and ended up getting caught in a water current that kept dragging me into the ocean). Got saved by a life guard. But honestly, I saw some of the most colorful fish I had ever seen.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to help and mentor High School and college students on topics ranging from College Admissions, Math and Science, Essays, Standardized Tests to career choices, how to find happiness in life and leadership.

What I Can Share With Hosts

My leadership experiences, my drive and passion to succeed and make a difference in my own and other's lives.
