About Me


Graduate alive.


I'm a senior UC Berkeley and I studied abroad in Padova, Italy last spring. I don't ever want to stop traveling and yet I don't ever want to leave my friends and family too far behind. Speak to me in Italian if you want...ho gia perso la maggior parte della lingua nei primi 5 mesi dopo il mio ritorno agli stati uniti! It makes me sad to have lost so much of it!


I am at least slightly afraid of most things, but I try not to think about it so much. If it gets really paralyzing, I just ask myself: what would you regret NOT doing more? I take chances but in a guarded way, to sum it all up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf couches (hopefully) and in return people get to meet an atypical American girl.


None thus far...


Architecture, people and their histories and their stories, food, drink, the Pacific Ocean, Asian American issues, photography, pleasant weather, local food and culture, planning and randomness.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't watch that many movies, or read enough books. But I am a fan of hyphy music, California rock, alternative music, and a bit of pop from all sorts of places.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am the first grandchild, the first to attend UC in my family, the first in my family to move to Europe, the first in my family to learn Italian,and probably the first in the family to study architecture and planning. My family thinks that's all pretty amazing, but I'd like to think my really amazing moment is yet to come.
