About Me


My 24th birthday was a few weeks ago so I thought of all the places I've been: Korea (3x), Vietnam, Japan (2x), Mexico, Canada (2x), Dominican Republic, Haiti, Germany, Australia, and Austria. I STILL HAVE MORE TO SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I've been told that I'm mature for my age, and that's why it's difficult for me to find *TRUE* friends that are interested in the same things as I, and are not interested in partying and sleeping around ALL THE TIME. I know who I am and I'm using CS to figure out where I belong in this place we call earth. I look forwarding to hosting CSers who are open-minded, goal-oriented, friendly/talkative, and enjoys trying new things. I know there are people out there that are interested in the same.

-JUST GRADUATED WITH A BACHELOR'S OF SCIENCE, double majored in Finance and Math, love numbers! =D

- know what my future goals are and am doing what it takes to get there

- am hard-working and know what my priorities are

- love being silly, but not immature

- don't smoke or do drugs (doesn't mean I don't like to party!)

- am an animal lover (my dad has two dogs, a chihuahua and a min pin)

- am very athletic (Played American FOOTBALL & I ran track for my school!)

- hate drama

- can drive, but rather depend on MUNI to get around

- love to learn from others

- am somewhat politically active and caught up with current events

- like to hang out in small groups

- love Japanese food

- love to dress up but usually have no reason to

- love nature and find beauty all around me

- try to have an optimistic outlook towards everyone and everything

- am very curious about a lot of things and am not afraid to ask for answers. Sometimes I will ask dumb questions, but who doesn't?

-love to try new things

- preferably share some of my interests and beliefs

- know what your goals are and have your priorities mirror your goals (that's pretty important to me)

- don't smoke or do drugs cuz it ain't gonna happen in my place! (VERY important to me)

- are not a crazy, out-of-control, party animal

And just so you know, I've hosted friends of friends before Couchsurfers. Some chickened out from CSing with me and I have done the same to others. But I have met some, and those have been cool experiences. I'm really cautious, so DO NOT EXPECT TO HAVE A PLACE TO CRASH WITHOUT US GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER FIRST, even if you're only staying one night.


It takes a lot of effort to appear effortless; hard work does pay off.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host others so that others can do the same for me. This is the golden rule people! ***A BONUS if you share this philosophy with me***

Golden Rule (definition)~So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.


If you plan on CSing with me, take note of my traveling plans. Please do not request to CS without reading the following lines. It's kind of hard to host you if you request to CS with me when I'm traveling isn't it? =) I'll be traveling to these places on these dates;
