About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is to learn and keep on learning! I want to better myself as a person and be a positive influence in other people's lives :) Every little bit counts!

ABOUT ME

Hello hello!I am an art history and social&behavior sciences double major who wants to continue working with children. I would like to travel and teach as well as help with women. One day, I would like to start my own little restaurant :)Hm, I like a little bit of everything. I think I would say I mostly am a food and art lover absolutely! When I travel, I would like to see/feel what the locals like.

PHILOSOPHY

Life only goes up :)

"People need people" -Stedman

"Be the change you want to see"- Gandhi

"Our world hangs like a magnificent jewel in the vastness of space. Every one of us is a part of that jewel. A facet of that jewel. And in the perspective of infinity, our differences are infinitesimal." -Fred Rogers

"Music's for grooving, man." -Janis Joplin

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I will be happy to meet up for coffee/tea :)

When I get my own couch, it can then be your couch; then it will be our couch, yes?

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Been to Burning Man!! Met so many beautiful souls and felt so much love from all around s third grade class and I was hired to be their fourth grade mentor the following year. Such a joy! A challenging experience that has helped me grow so much! It was the best year of my life :)Update: Volunteering with them as fifth graders in a 5th/6th grade class and it is verrrry different!

Seeing nightfall and dawn at the same while flying through the sky; unbelievable!

Four day Greyhound trip across the states ;p
