About Me

Hello! I'm Jerry and I'm a student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe studying Risk Management & Insurance :) I grew up in Central Jersey but decided to take a leap of faith and go to college here in Louisiana--and I'm so glad I did! The weather is beautiful and the people are very friendly (but it's very hot in the summer!). I absolutely love to travel and usually go solo. I'm also vegan and I love trying new restaurants/food anywhere I go. My goal is to see as much of the world as possible and meet as many wonderful people as I can along the way!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am on Couchsurfing because it seems like a great opportunity to travel on a budget while meeting new people and immersing myself in cultures!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I moved 1,000 miles away for college without knowing much about the new town/place I'd be in! It turned out to be a great way to learn more about other people and myself.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've learned lots of recipes since I began a plant-based diet, so if you're interested in learning some plant-based/healthy recipes, I would love to share! Also, since I've lived in America my whole life, I can give you insight into what it's like to live here if you've never been. I've been to most Southern and Northeastern states, including major cities like Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, and Dallas.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I will bring my unique perspectives with me! I try each and every day to be empathetic toward others and see life from other people's perspectives. Doing so has allowed me to grow a lot.
