About Me


About me... well where do you start really? I like to think I'm a happy, optimistic and friendly kinda person. I enjoy doing pretty much everything and I'll try anything as long as I'm in good company.
But I still have a lot of places to go and things to learn
I studied Swahili and Anthropology as my first degree and then spent a year working in Kenya. I am now back in England, studying adult nursing in Southampton.

Every person you meet knows something you don't. Learn from them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Started couchsurfing on a trip round Mozambique and Malawi in 2011, which was awesome. Did some hosting in London too and surfed a little around Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Turkey recently.

At the moment music like Amadou & Mariam, Wir sind Helden, Laura Marling, Simon & Garfunkel, Sam Cooke, Mzungu Kichaa, Buena Vista Social Club, Olafur Arnalds, The Decemberists, Virginia Coalition, Adele, Norwegian Recycling, Diamond, Souad Massi, the list goes on...
Among my favourite movies are The Intouchables and Silver Linings Playbook.
