Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couch Surfing is amazing. I have met so many different and interesting people, whom I share so much in common, and would have never known if not for couch surfing.

Interests

I LOVE cooking. I'm always interested in trying new foods and then trying to re-create them. If you have any cool recipes, I will definitely steal them (bwhaha)!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I got to work with a great team consisting of only 9 other people to run a Saturday community service program for 100+ 12 year olds (oy!). In just 6 months, we raised $600 to give to charity, 1,200 lbs of food to give to a food bank, visited numerous elderly homes, refurbished and painted a library, planted trees, picked up hundreds and hundreds of pounds of trash, helped at a animal shelter, and so so so much more! I have never been so amazed to witness the power of young people.
