About Me

**Currently hosting in Salinas, CA.**

I'm born and raised in Monterey, California. I'm currently studying at Cal State Monterey Bay pursuing a degree in Humanities and Communication. I have lower education in Social Sciences and Psychology. My goal is to get a teaching credential and teach English at the high school or junior college level.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would love to engage with people from all over the world and give back in a small way.


I've been published for writing and have spoken at poetry events as well. I also love to play basketball, I've been playing my whole life. I just started practicing meditation and mindfulness and I'm really grateful for the practice.
