About Me

I was born and raised in Vietnam. I moved to Vancouver, British Columbia when I was 18 to start my undergrad in Commerce, and have lived here for 5 years since then. I have been very busy with my studying and it's finally over (for now), so I'm very looking forward to doing more travelling! One of my life goals is to see more countries and experience different cultures in my 20s. I like going on outdoor adventures, taking photos, and taking to people to broaden my perspectives on various topics. I enjoy goofy times and also deliberate, authentic conversations.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Besides not blowing money on accommodation when travelling, I want to meet new friends and learn about different cultures, personalities, perspectives, ways of living. CSers are always so easy going and open-minded, with plentiful of amazing stories. I love it!
