About Me

ABOUT ME

27 year old college graduate student looking ahead to the next step of life while enjoying the present.

PHILOSOPHY

to me, THIS IS THE PERFECT PHILOSOPHY:

Take every opportunity to do as much as we can and live it up for every moment!

my favorite quote:

"That Day is Today"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I heard many positive things from my friends who used CouchSurfing and I am looking forward to the same experience. My dorm neighbor at College once hosted two gals from Germany and we had so much fun that meeting new people from outside the country thanks to Couch Surfing. I hope to have that same kind of experience those two girls had using Couch Surfing.

My experience using CS when I was traveling in Europe for 83 days was wonderful. With CS, I experienced a variety of things from yoga, city tours, raves/bars/clubs, family life, student life and of course, new friends I will remember for life.

Interests

Traveling!
tasting local beer not the ones that is everywhere
Going to historical sites/landmarks/museums and learning more about a place
exploring (It is not that difficult, Usually I just put the map away and just walk!)
I love climbing to the top of hills and enjoying the view!
Meeting Deaf people, teaching sign language to people who never used sign language, spread awareness and educating about deaf people and learning more about life from others.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm Deaf person with a Deaf identity but I have some hearing so I can enjoy some music especially loud ones when I can feel the vibrations.

My favorite writer is Chuck Palahniuk, I collect and read all of his books. If you read him too we can talk all night long about his writing

I'm always behind with the latest movies, but I always appreciate the good ones. anything that makes me laugh is a big plus

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Asia: The Taipei 101 Tower - Taipei, Taiwan
Middle East: Masada Mountain - Israel
North America: The Philadelphia Phillies win the world series
Europe - Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

Continents I need to go travel someday: South America, Africa, Australia and more of Asia

Teach, Learn, Share

I am only a Deaf person who wants to explore the world. I have a passion for Deaf awareness, and communicating with people. Even though we might speak, write or read different languages, we still both can understand and respect each other as imperfect human beings.

I am a open listener and eager to learn. I can offer to teach and share some Sign Language and my experiences as a Deaf person.
