About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Transcend the bullshit.

ABOUT ME

I like to think that I am one of the funnest/funniest people you'll meet! But you'll just have to find out. I love to have a good time and I'll try anything twice. I am still a student so I always look for the good deals, but am not cheap by any means, I can just say that when I live somewhere I know where to get the best things for the cheapest. I am a bartender and thus am very into good food and drinks. I love to travel and can't stand staying in one place for too long. I teach English every summer in an indigenous village in Chiapas, Mexico, my favorite place. I love to dance, sing, laugh, cook, and be in nature, especially on the beach :)

PHILOSOPHY

Transcend the bullshit

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would love to be able to meet new people everywhere. When I go back home to Seattle (August 2012!!), I have so much more to learn so I can give back equally to the people passing through, as my hosts have shared their cities with me!

Have couchsurfed now all over Spain and met multiple couchsurfers travelling also! I LOOOOVE IT! It's really a beautiful thing to share with people while travelling, learning, understanding, and growing together. Each time you leave wanting to know and share more about your own city.

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak Spanish, and English for that matter, even though I take it for granted sometimes. I have learned that true leadership is using your position of power, however small it is, in a positive way. I try to live up to this, knowing that even though I am a student, and young woman, I have learned that I am lucky to be a woman in the United States and have the opportunity to travel and learn as much as I have.
I can also make yummy drinks and food!
