About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explore, create, dream, and fulfill

ABOUT ME

I grew up traveling all over the world. I love languages, love learning, and love sight-seeing. About me? I'm a happy person with an open mind and an optimistic outlook. My parents raised me to be polite and understanding of all cultures. I honestly believe there's something to learn from everyone.

PHILOSOPHY

"It is the mark of an educated mind to entertain a thought without accepting it." I'll listen to anything anyone has to say, and I'll respect them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I heard about this website from my teachers at school and wanted to be a part of this project as an objective and open-minded individual. I am more than willing to help my host with whatever they need - includes cleaning, cooking, and buying food (am vegetarian). I understand that people have their own private lives - I respect that and do not want or expect any special service. I will not hog your bathroom, and I am dead serious when I say that I will do everything in my power to not inconvenience you. You let me stay with you, and I will not take advantage of that.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A friend and I couchsurfed with a guy, and it was a really great, relaxing weekend. He was so friendly, introducing us to all of his friends and making yummy Spanish food for us. We shared lots of laughs. :)

Interests

Anything, really...mainly traveling, books, movies, sight-seeing, trivia, history, and anything else that provides an exceptionally good time. I'm pretty open-minded and don't get bored that easily. I like getting out and doing things but being indoors is wonderful as well.
