Join Couchsurfing to see Derek’s full profile. It’s free!
Hello I am Derek, have been on CS for five years now. Living in Uganda and finding it pretty good for me. I am have a good career with responsibilities and am well directed. I graduated as a medical laboratory technician and also am a well trained massage therapist. LGBTQ friendly and can host you as well since I am too.
I love my life. I am honest and forthright and love TRUTH... I believe I am selfless and trustworthy, outgoing and at the same time welcoming to everyone. I believe in life beyond borders not least as I have traveled extensively. I believe learning never ends, and that is why I make sure I learn from whoever I meet and speak with.
I believe that in life we always learn from whoever we meet and at one point in time we get to know who we cherish and who we love.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I participate by hosting surfers, and I also help newcomers get to know more about my city and my neighbourhood.
I choose to live between Entebbe and Kampala; I am able to strike a contrast between where we live virtually and where we are physically.
It is super-positive as regards the wonderful people I have hosted, and how my family has changed its perception towards CS from the people I host. I have also met nice and wonderful friends at CS meetings which has enriched my friendship circle.
