I am passionate, sometimes to a fault. I entered law school in order to work for others seeking human and civil rights. I am a great advocate and am working on being a better activist.
Recently relocated to Chicago from NYC. Just returned from 6 weeks in Guatemala and trying to learn Spanish. Planning to continue traveling south at the end of the summer so I do not have a couch right now
Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Meeting new people. I don't have a couch to offer...yet!
I met some great people while traveling in India and when I first moved to NYC.
Well, travel. Human and civil rights, history, literature, music, art history, dance, world events. I am also a bit of a freak about animals; love them! Learning everything I can.
- live music
- learning spanish
Morceaux de musique, films et livres
Almost all music but I just cannot enjoy country. I really loved exploring contemporary Swahili hip hop and pop while in E. Africa.
I have an MA in English Lit so it's near impossible for me to list a few favorite books- there are too many.
Movies: I love old Hollywood horror & silent films, foreign films. I don't own a TV.
Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue
For 10 years it was my dream to experience Rwanda so, for me, it was amazing to finally explore the tiny, beautiful country on my own in 2011. Although travel is usually more fun with a friend, this trip alone was perfect.
I feel so privileged to have worked with a human rights legend in Madurai, India in 2012.
Hugging baby elephants in Nairobi and feeding bush babies in Masai Mara!
Enseignez, apprenez, partagez
Well, if anyone wants to learn or discuss feminist & post-colonial theory and literature, or anything dealing with gender rights and issues, I can go on all night. I also have a decent and random knowledge of US hip hop mostly in the context of social, racial & gender issues.
Language exchange- English for Spanish!
