About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Looking to experience as much as this world has to offer as I can.

ABOUT ME

I'm a Middle East Studies major at Dickinson College. I love to travel, and am currently teaching English abroad for the summer. I think experience is the best form of education. Theory is important for understanding but theory isn't always right and the best way to see is to experience for yourself. I am a bit shy at first but once I feel comfortable my friends know it's hard to get me to stop talking. I enjoy meeting down to earth people, talking about life, and sharing ideas. Good food is one of the best things ever, especially when you share it with good people.

PHILOSOPHY

The best way to learn is through experience. And even if you find you don't like something, you at least had the opportunity to gain that knowledge.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can't currently host as I live on a college campus but am looking to surf for my trip to London.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Haven't sued couchsurfing before but I've stayed in Spain through Airbnb and lived with host families in Dallas, and Morocco. I love when the host is willing to do something with the traveler beyond being a landlord. The host is a representative of the people.
