About Me

I'm a student who likes to incorporate travel into my studies. I work with farmers studying a mix of food systems, public health, and natural resource management in fragile socio-ecosystems. This led me to beautiful places like the semi-arid regions of Kenya, Uganda, and previously India and Bangladesh. I love the natural outdoors even though I was born in the concrete jungle of Hong Kong.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Traveling on a budget. I had many great experiences o hospitality in other countries and I'd like to return the same to others visiting my city.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did a 4-day hike to one of the 3 summits of Mt. Kenya. It was an incredible journey, hiking through moorishland, bamboo forests, river vally, snow and ice, sometimes in the night with the sky full of stars. I would do it again if I have a chance!
