About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I have two passions in life and they are traveling and teaching English to non-native speakers. I am new to traveling but I love it and I plan on visiting every continent (well, maybe not Antarctica) in order to experience different cultures.

ABOUT ME

I am friendly, open-minded, fun, easygoing, passionate, and motivated. I love to meet new people and experience new things. Traveling is the only way to do this and it provides a kind of thrill and excitement to life!

Also, I live on the beautiful island of American Samoa in the South Pacific. It's a U.S. territory and is not widely visited by tourists, but I would love to host couchsurfers.

PHILOSOPHY

World traveler=wanderlust
