About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Carpe Diem (You only live once right)

ABOUT ME

I was born in New York and my father is from London (United Kingdom) so 1/2 American, 1/4 British, and 1/4 African - complicated lol.

Except someone makes a terrible replica of me, you'll find me a very friendly and outgoing person. Love to meet new people especially those from different cultural backgrounds. I also love to learn new things e.g. learn new language, learn about myths, try new crazy adventures (lol) as long as I don't die.

Finally and most importantly, I love international fooooooodddd so bring it on.

Lolllll. Some CS people have been asking me if I am really 110+ years old - oh noooooooo. Do I look that old? (be nice ppl - my mum is just almost 67 years old - do the math pls lol)

PHILOSOPHY

What about those with more than one philosophy?

Philosophies:

- You only have one life to live soooooo live it till you drop

- Live a life of 'No regrets'

- Do it now, ask questions later.

- Never disregard relationships with people because you just never know when it will come handy

- Why hate when you can love?

- A friend is the once-a-stranger you let into your life

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING?

For couchsurfers
Apart from hosting, I use my work to help people convert their money into local currencies. For example, if Couchsurfers have Dollars, Pounds, Euros etc, I can change help them change their currency on the FX markets, which is way better than they will receive from Western Union etc.

Predonminantly, I want to participate in making this huge structured world a small global space. In simple words, to meet & host ppl from across the globe and feel welcome anywhere in the world regardless of natural or human-built differences.

The last time I counted, I had hosted over 300 couchsurfers in London and in New York - from every continent around the world and two from Mars - I love them allllllll. lol. Yupeee.

I have also surfed and built good friendships with couchsurfers in Germany, Portugal, Spain, China, Netherlands, South Africa, and South America.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Well, you will have to ask me because I have too many. Most of them are extremely funny and I won't just stop laughing.

Interests

I love love and love movies, hanging around with friends and meeting new people. I love cooking and definitely like experimenting new types of food - so bring it on people.....

I particularly love music, travelling and playing snooker & chess.

I have been developing interest in water sports / activities such as kayaking, surfing and deep sea diving. With caution Ola, caution - there are still killing sharks out there !!!
