About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Free my mind, walk around and learn.

ABOUT ME

I was born and raised in South Korea, but now living and studying in United States as a college student. I get bored easily when I'm not moving around, so I try to do so as much as possible. I love trying out and learning new things, and sometimes engage in a bit of debauchery.(Because life has to be fun!)I describe myself easy-going, spontaneous and thoughtful.

PHILOSOPHY

Live the present moment.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surf and go to meetups/parties/activities. In Seoul, I organized weekly meetups and activities.

Now back in Pioneer Valley, I hope to get involved with the community here . Come to weekly meetup every Thursday in Amherst.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Although I created an account earlier, I didn't start couchsurfing until October of 2011. I surfed at a couchsurfing co-op in Boston for a weekend and I had an excellent experience. Since then, I have been couchsurfing in several places in the world. I'd love to host people when I get my own space.
