About Me

Hi there!I'm a student in Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications. I major in arts and media which is about writing scripts and directing movies. I want to show you beautiful Chinese culture and try to understand yours.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Media makes us live in a pseudo-environment which tells us”the truth”that we supposed to believe. Even we are in the same planet, we cannot really know a country and its cultures only by the internet, news or without talking to local people. I want to chat with the people who really live and make history of this city, to know the local culture and share my culture ;-)
And I truly feel that each time we meet a new friend, our lives continue in another way.
