Live life to the fullest, build community, and "be a hummingbird" (See this video; seriously, watch it! https://youtu.be/IGMW6YWjMxw )
I'm a university graduate with a global mind and a passion for environmental and social justice. I thoroughly enjoy experiencing other languages and culture (I studied both at university), and I want to experience the world!
We are put onto this earth not to destroy our surroundings, but to enhance them. Our degradation of the environment, of our communities, and of our selves is a tragedy; I seek, wherever I can, to over come these tragedies in my own life and the lives of those around me.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have couchsurfed , and I've hosted too...
I have met some really awesome people through CouchSurfing, making friends along the way throughout the world. It's such a great project and I think quite highly of it. :)
I have hosted a few people and surfed a few times. Every experience has been positive so far, and some of them have been life-changingly awesome! =)
I have some really great friends now, all thanks to CouchSurfing!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Teaching. I've gotten some volunteer experience in a classroom and some summer camp education experience. The most amazing thing is when you provide a student with knowledge that they both desire and appreciate. Better yet, seeing them apply the techniques for critical thinking with which you've helped them become more adept. Seeing a student, a young mind, benefit from your teaching really is the most rewarding experience ever.
Teach, Learn, Share
I would like to be able to help others practice their English, and I would like others to help me practice my other languages (French, Italian, etc.).
I also love learning how to cook (vegan) dishes from other countries.
