About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be innovative, exchange opinions, and accept the truth.

ABOUT ME

I am a student filmmaker/photographer and I upload them here: www.vimeo.com/iluvyoo.

I think of perspective a lot and I tweet! www.twitter.com/elizaykim

I am a survivor and a communicator. I fear no colors and discomfort in communication. Thus, I ask critical questions that enrich the atmosphere with intellectual diversity.

I also like sangria and chupitos!

PHILOSOPHY

Karma.
Asking questions.

I believe everyone should be understanding of others' mindset and space.

I am strong minded and against this kind of psychology,
"This is me and this is you. We're just fundamentally different and we won't go anymore in depth."

I mean, how can you give up on yourself so easily?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to use couchsurfing to get to know different cultures and travel abroad.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great experiences surfing in Reykjavik, Avebury, London, and Bilbao!

Interests

I love dogs and cats. I love swimming and playing golf.
I love traveling and watching rain behind a window.

I eat almonds, mushroom, tofu, nutella, eggs, pasta, seafood, tomato, mango, rice, noodles, and meat.

Music, Movies & Books

I love indie films like Napoleon Dynamite and Little Miss Sunshine.

Having grown up in Hollywood, I definitely love big blockbuster films like the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Inception.

I love Pixar and Dreamworks films too, like The Incredibles and Shrek.

As a film major, I adore Persona, Metropolis, and Mothlight.

Music! Korean music of the 60's are my favorite.
If you can only think K-pop and Gangnam Style... That too! Why not?!

I liked Yellow Wallpaper, Catcher in the Rye, and Jane Eyre.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I had volunteered in Costa Rica two years ago in a nursing home. I need to go back. It was a memory I will never forget.

On a different note, I once met Michael Cera in a bookstore.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach golf, swimming, Korean, English, Spanish, and Tae Kwon Do.

Or... I can teach you how to make Korean potato pancakes..
you know they are nutritious and healthy :)
