Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I would like to participate in CS (also my initials) by meeting up with other travellers or locals and getting to know them better. I love connecting with other people from different walks of life; combining that with exploring a city = :)
Fledgling couchsurfer...not many experiences yet, but hopefully that'll change soon!
Let's see....I like (most) people, music, and eating. And more specifically, I also indulge in poetry, running, photography, languages, fashion, nature, discovering people's quirks, surrealism, helping people, puzzles, the wonderful worldwide web, and dancing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Seen: Intangible, but the affection & love for complete strangers I felt when I participated in a weeklong volunteer trip in the Bronx, NY a few years ago. I have never before and never since witnessed so many, consecutive random acts of kindness. After the trip, I made social work my primary major and got more involved with educating and empowering impoverished people in the area around my university.
Done: Ran a half marathon! 1:58:36, couldn't believe I finished under 2 hours. However, did end up in physical therapy for several months after.
