About Me


My name is Em. I have some cool stories about every continent except for Antarctica. I've been to around 30 different countries and I am ALWAYS down to share stories.

I love food, but I don't eat meat. I love to try new foods from around the world. I love experiencing new cultures and new types of philosophies. I study anthropology in university but online. I am also a Batista at Starbucks when and if I am home.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet more local people so I have a more authentic experience while spending time abroad! Also, to share stories and culture with each other.
