About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To figure out who I am and what I have to offer the world

ABOUT ME

I love fashion - mostly I like custom designs, dance wear, and clubwear....a little bit of bridal too, especially since I made my best friend's wedding dress. I looove to dance...I've tap danced a bit, done a tiny bit of ballet, a little ballroom, but mostly I'm into hip hop. I love to cook and bake, and have recently started making eating good healthy food a priority. I've also really found a love for working out lately, it keeps me focused. I'm really good at organizing everything except for my own bedroom. I love a challenge, and I love to help people...anything I can do to make someone else's life easier I usually will. I get emotional and emotionally attached easily and frequently, but I'd rather give it my everything and come away with a complete experience than leave knowing I didn't give it everything I've got, no matter what we're talkin about.

PHILOSOPHY

Live life with an open heart and an open mind. Learn new things and have new experiences. Give your all. Grow with every experience.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surf when I travel. When possible, I host. I love to attend events as often as I can.

Interests

Fashion. Dance and music. Volleyball. Teaching. Cooking and baking. Reading. My family (I appreciate them more now that I've been so far away). Love. Making lasting connections. Anything that makes me smile, which is just about everything.

Music, Movies & Books

I'm pretty much obsessed with all dance movies, and disney movies too. I love science fiction and fantasy in books and movies. I dabble in spiritual books, trying to expand my point of view. And I listen to tons of different music, but no country music really.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The thing I'm most proud of is quitting my job because it didn't make me happy and deciding to travel while I figure out what I want to do. It was super empowering.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know some things and there are tons of things I want to learn...anything you're willing to teach me, I'm ready to try to grasp (not saying I'll do a good job though :-P)

Countries I've Visited

France, New Zealand, Spain, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Australia, United States
