Join Couchsurfing to see Kimmi’s full profile. It’s free!
kimmi v. (that's me!) is currently a business volunteer in namibia. although a boston girl at heart, kimmi's practically a nomad, spending (almost) too much of her time traveling or researching her next destination. she loves planning spontaneous trips to the amazon, food connoisseur-ing, Sudoku puzzle solving, cooking, and baking. she also lives by the immortal words of kevin gnapoor (mean girls), “don’t let the haters stop you from doing your thang.”
my focus during service will revolve around women’s empowerment via income generation, and girl’s education rights and promotion through FAWENA, an NGO under the Ministry of Education.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

What I Can Share with Hosts
you'll have your own room with a key to the room. you'll have a double bed to yourself unless you don't mind sharing with someone else. if i have mutliple surfers, whoever confirms after can sleep on the floor with a sleeping bag.
you'll share the bathroom and shower with me!
i do run on a volunteer's budget (pretty much nothing), so if you can chip in for groceries or whatnot, that'd be appreciate.
