Love life and LIVE everyday! Travel forever and try new things!
Im am currently attending University in persuit of a degree in International Affairs with minors in Sociology and Spanish. Last year I had the privlidge of living in England on a voluenteer program. I was placed at a Lancaster University with the task of assisting a student who is physically impired. I helped her with daily tasks and to have fun, ensuring she didn't take work too seriously :). I had a very flexible schedual and was able to explore much of Europe, all the while meeting wonderful people. I love being independant and discovering new things to me. Helping people and sunshine make me happy.
If you feel like singing out loud do it!! Be true to yourself always, and enter every situation in life with an open mind.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I couched surfed with a friend in Salzburg for the first time in April 2009 and had a blast. We gave a go again in Berlin and Budapest over the summer. Some of my favorite experiences of cities have been couch surfing ones!
I love traveling, its an addiction, Soccer (football), snowboarding, wakeboarding, chocolate, cheese, and my family are all things my life would not feel complete without.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I visited Morocco in April 2009, I spent a night under the stars in the Sahara, on top of the hightest sand dune that could be seen. The moon was so bright even the beetles crawling on the sand had their own shadow. Iv'e never been so at peace.
