About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet people from all over the world and hear their stories. Just to live life to the fullest!

ABOUT ME

I am currently a student studying International Business, Marketing, German, and Spanish. Currently I am studying abroad in Chile, I have been an exchange student in Japan and before in Germany, and in 2014 I was an au pair in Spain. I've also hosted an exchange student and am still very active with the exchange program I went abroad with. In addition to that I have moved quite a bit in my life - I have lived in California, Colorado, Texas, Michigan, and South Carolina. I'm generally outgoing and positive and always look forward to new adventures and meeting new characters!

PHILOSOPHY

"Just say yes"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As of right now I can't host, but I am always wanting to meet up with new people!

Other than that, I love hearing people's stories and what makes them well, them. I also believe in leaving everything better than how I found it. Just being positive!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I Couchsurfed with two different hosts in Paris in April 2014 and LOVED my experience! These wonderful people that hosted me were so friendly and accommodating and have really opened my eyes to the great thing that is couch surfing. It has been a wonderful experience that I hope to continue.

Since then, I have couch surfed in Nashville, Tennessee and Fayetteville, Arkansas, both of which were great experiences with great people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: I'm not the biggest movie person actually! I don't watch much TV either, but I did really enjoy 500 Days of Summer, The Office, and Parks and Rec.

Books: Neverwhere, The Time Traveler's Wife, Gone Girl (didn't enjoy the movie), Harry Potter, John Green books, 1894. I especially like reading books in German to improve my language skills

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I surprised my friend in Germany for his 18th birthday (we jokingly promised that I would come to his birthday party two years prior, neither one of us believing that it would ever happen). The look on his face when he saw me was just awesome and unforgettable!!

I've also ran a half marathon without training for it (would I do that again? No. Was it awesome? Yes!)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to make a beautiful origami flower bouquet that my exchange student taught me. I could also teach you some German. I also love cooking and would be very excited to get to cook for you!

To me couchsurfing is more than just having a place to stay. I would love to share stories and create memories. In the end, we are all learning how to live in this crazy world (cliche, I know), but travelers can learn so much about life from each other.
