About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to enjoy the smaller things in life. and of course, try new food.

ABOUT ME

I'm 19, and I currently live in Amman, Jordan. I grew up in South Jersey, but have also lived in California and more recently, North Carolina. I graduated from high school and immediately moved to Jordan to spend 2 years learning Arabic before going to college. I love traveling and meeting new people. I like the occasional touristy spot, but I love the little hidden places that nobody besides the locals know about. I'm generally outgoing and sometimes a bit crazy, but that usually helps me to get along with people. I love food. and lots of chocolate. I enjoy trying new things, seeing new places, especially if it involves food I've never had before.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

books: love john grisham. and james patterson. pride and prejudice, count of monte cristo, 3 musketeers, anything tolkien, narnia and hp series, stephen lawhead, the wedding

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen breath-taking sunsets in the middle of the desert in wadi rum, got to see 2 rainbows right next to each other after an afternoon of torrential downpours, and barely survived winging it through white water rapids without a boat. and i still think scotland has some of the most beautiful places on earth.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can always learn from different cultures, and i love sharing my passion for new and different foods. i definitely grew up with the mindset that america was the best place to be, but since i've traveled more, i've found that i love being in cultures that are completely different from what i'm used to.
