About Me


wait for the summer and enjoy it in Berlin


i am short, warm and female.
Thats what my name means in chinese
...and its kind of true

and some deeper information: I was born in holland, grew up in germany, lived for a year in south africa and am living in Berlin for almost 5 years and really enjoyed it there. At the moment I continue my studies in utrecht, the netherlands.


Happiness is taking the things as they are

Happiness is only true when shared

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Surfing, travelling, hosting,
i did all you can do on couchsurfing ;)

I started hosting and surfing in 2009 with my former flatmates by a shared account. Last years it has been quiet, but now I want to start again. I surfed a lot in France, now I want to host again.


I surfed couches in Kopenhagen, Prag, Utrecht en Rotterdam, Marseille and Nantes.
I met really great people there and looking forward to new experiences!

In Berlin I have hosted a couple of times. Partied with the surfers, went to a demonstration and had nice meals together.


spend time with friends. ice-skating. history. politics. eating. being outside. feminism. dancing. playing board games, card games and poker. reading. watching tv-series. vegetarian burgers. sociology.

Walking arround outside and talking to people, get to know them, how they think, how they are raised and learning about their cultural context.

And I am especially interested in migration and multiculturalism and life stories within these settings to get another perspective on all the theories I learned from reading.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Rokia Traore, Regina Spector, Giora Feidman... My new discoveries for listening are Kat Frankie and Speech Debelle. I have had a Indie phase in my youth..

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Fusion Festival 2011...when it was raining and one could dance with rubber boots im big and deep puddles of mud

meeting a 2-year-old who could not talk much, but burp at the push of a button

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cut hair and used to cut most of my friends hair, but I gave up on that, when it became too many and so too busy.

But I like to sing and make music together or dance at a concert or club.
