Join Couchsurfing to see Chelsea’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a recent graduate from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in environmental studies. I am currently preparing for a trip to the Middle East where I will be working on environmental peacemaking efforts. I have traveled quite a bit and I love going new places and meeting fellow travelers! I am fairly new to CS but I've heard good things about it from friends and I'm looking forward to joining this community!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've hosted a number of couch surfers, although we connected via word of mouth before I new about this site! It's been great to offer people traveling in California a place to stay because there are often very few hostels out here and it can be hard for travelers to find places to stay and meet people.
Environmentalism, politics, peace, nonviolence, the middle east, studying Arabic, biking, hiking, traveling, meeting new people and dancing!
Music, Movies, and Books
Some of my favorite books include: 100 Years of Solitude, Love in the Time of Cholera, The Enchantress of Florence, The Giver, Haroun and the Sea of Stories and Nonviolence: A History of A Dangerous Idea.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Walked on a glacier in shorts in New Zealand!
Teach, Learn, Share
I have taken a number of vegan and raw vegan cooking classes and I would love to share a meal and some recipes.
I would love to share with people my passion for the environment, non-violent communication and experience with grassroots organizing and institutional transformation.
I am studying arabic and would love a chance to learn more and practice what I know.
