About Me

Implant Berlinerin raised in the US and South Korea. I studied global history in Los Angeles for my bachelor's degree, which rather unexpectedly brought me to Berlin. Since 2013, I have been living in the German capital, learned the language to some extent (far from perfection), and had many fond memories in Europe!

I was working in the arts and culture industry for two years, then decided to continue my studies in global history in hopes of developing a deeper understanding of past times that shape today's world. Yep.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Just this year I started exploring more of Europe and lending my extra couch to people I've met on my travels (off of couch-surfing.com) .

The experience has been rewarding, and I hope to continue that here.
