About Me


I just moved back to Austin, this is my first time living on my own, no family, nothing. Living has been hard, very hard. I've ran into some trouble and need a new place to stay until March 1, In need for a miracle, Being on your own is hard.


I was born in Lebanon and moved to Austin when I was just a baby. Austin has basically been my hometown forever. For the past 4 years I was away for College, I studied at Notre Dame University and Majored in Fashion Design, but decided to take some time off after 2 years. I am currently changing majors and will be going to Culinary school soon, can't wait.

I'm a 21 year old gal, full of life and excitement. I'm very fun to be around, and always find a way to bring light to the room. I love making people laugh, and just having a good time.

I'm drama free, and try to keep away from drama.

I love meeting new people, and traveling. It has become a big part of my life.


I've had it rough for the past couple years of my life, my moto was always living for others and making others happy. I'm a caregiver, I've always been that way. I am now on a journey, trying to fit the pieces in my life. Trying to find what makes me happy and what excites me. I definitely have to say it's been a roller coaster of emotions and thoughts. I'm finally living for me, trying to make me happy while still making those around me happy. Life is short, we only have one shot at it, so live it the best you can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


This is my first actual couch surfing experience. Since I've been back to Austin I've stayed with some friends, but problems came up and can no longer do so. So I'm pretty excited about giving it a try.


My interests range all over the place, I'm a very creative person and love to do things that involve being creative. From photography, to painting, to writing, to cooking, traveling, meeting new people, hiking, being outdoors, etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love scary movies, I'm a horror freak. I'm also into comedies, romance, and such.

Music wise? I like just about anything, not a huge fan of country and rap though. I like Rock, Metal, Indie, etc.

I love to read, and if I'm going to start talking about books, I'll never get done.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've spent most of my life in fear, fear of what's out there. Fear of failure. Never really taken the chance to live the life I wanted. I was happy, but not happy. I took a lot of things for granted, starting with my own life. I never got to see the beauty in it, I always lived it for other's, was then hurt and used. I've had my entire life be a door for people, to walk in and out and never had any true friendships. If there is anything I could share here, it is to love and accept with an open heart and open mind, don't give and expect. Give because you want to give, and surround yourself with those who want to give back.

If it's one thing I want to learn is to just be happy with the good and bad in my life. I want to get experiences out of these by meeting new and wonderful people, even if it's for a short period of time. I remember people forever, whether I've known you for an hour, a day or even a year. I don't forget easily.
