Join Couchsurfing to see Julie’s full profile. It’s free!
I am originally from Arizona and moved to New York City to go to school. I have lived in the city for 6 years now (except for 6 months living in Madrid) and absolutely love it! I enjoy the diversity that the city has to offer and I get to come into contact with new cultures everyday.
I work for a public defender (lawyers for people who can't afford them) and do social justice and human rights work. I am going back to school for my Masters degree soon.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love to make friends & connect with people from all over the world. CS is truly beautiful since it allows you to recognize the humanity and love in others that are different from you. I think everyone should try to meet & understand people from different cultures because it breeds love and compassion.
My favorite part about surfing & hosting is the conversation & hearing about other people's lives, struggles, & adventures.
I used couchsurfing often when I lived in Spain and had an awesome time with each host. I have hosted & surfed in Europe and New York. I fell in love with Couchsurfing the first time I tried it and it made being a tourist so much more exciting and I really felt like I was able to understand the city & culture better because of it. Every host I stayed with became a good friend and have come to visit me in NY after which was so much fun.
I love dancing!! My favorite part of traveling is watching and learning different styles of dance in each country.
I am always drawn to places that have beaches & stray dogs since I love animals.
