About Me


To learn through experience


I'm somewhat displaced: born in Hong Kong, moved to Vancouver, Canada with my family at six, and returned to HK at fourteen. I am now studying in Philadelphia and am trying to figure out what I want to do with my life...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My only couchsurfing experience thus far has been in Charleston, SC where a friend and I stayed for three days last summer. It was a very different travel experience from what I'm used to, our host was great, and overall it was a very positive introduction to couchsurfing.
