Join Couchsurfing to see Lily’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a math and French major at Amherst College in Massachusetts. For the 2016-2017 academic year, I studied abroad in Europe. I spent fall 2016 at the University of Bordeaux and spring 2017 at the University of Oxford.
In my free time, I like to train for endurance races, obsessively learn French, play the violin, and write for my lifestyle/fashion blog. I also co-curate Thank You for the Tragedy, an online collection of reader-submitted love tragedy memoirs.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm looking for new friends as I travel solo and a local's perspective on the towns I visit.
Music, Movies, and Books
My favorite American singer-songwriters are Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson. I can frequently be heard belting out their tunes in the shower. I also have a soft spot for classic hits from the 80s-90s. My favorite francophone artists are Sara'h, Joyce Jonathan, and Stromae.
I'm not a big movie person, but I love reading. I especially enjoy social psych books (think Malcolm Gladwell), memoirs (Scott Jurek's Eat and Run), and of course French literature (Roland Barthes).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Ran a marathon in Providence, Rhode Island.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I love making vegan/vegetarian food--especially vegan desserts!
I'd also love to shoot photos of you with my DSLR--taking portraits is my favorite.
If I have my violin, I'm also happy jam away.
And of course, I'm always looking for opportunities to speak in French.
