Join Couchsurfing to see Arianna’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm 21-years-old and studying International Development at McGill University, although being a student is just a small part of what I do. I also work as an assistant to two stock brokers during the week and bartend on weekends.
From the time I was 10-years-old, I had my life plan sketched out and even sub-divided. For the first time I have no idea what's coming next, and I think I'm okay with that.
I'm a biological determinist and so I can't be held accountable for my actions.
Just kidding :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've hosted a handful of people, and had the honour of being hosted by some very incredible people in Europe.
I've had only great experiences! I've hosted, been hosted, and attended several local CS events.
I'm a very physically active person. I love going to the gym. I used to be a runner before my leg injury; Now I focus on weight training and my favorite sport, badminton.
Bringing people together is what I do. I plan social events often and include everyone I can.
I am very goal driven, so my interests are generally centered on the next target.
Of course, I love to travel and meet new people. I wouldn't be on the site if I didn't, right?
Music, Movies, and Books
-My favorite movies are "Pulp Fiction" and "12 Angry Men."
-I mostly listen to alternative. My favorite bands seem to be Arctic Monkeys, Spoon, Guster, and others like it. I've learned that I seem to have the music taste of a 25-year-old man haha
-I absolutely love reading what Steven Pinker has to say about the world. In general, I read books in the social sciences.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The most amazing trip I took was to Saudi Arabia, since its impact was completely unexpected. North America has so many misconceptions about the Middle East, but this is to be expected without the proper cultural understanding. I met so many incredible people and learned a lot about a culture that is completely different from my own. I feel I grew as a person in those two short weeks.
Teach, Learn, Share
I need to improve my French! Although I live in Quebec, I'm just not properly immersed. I have improved my French because of my bartending job, but really it has not been enough to pick up the language.
I am the type of person who likes to learn a little about a lot. If you are presenting me with new knowledge, you have my undivided attention.
