About Me

ABOUT ME

I love traveling and seeing new countries. I am obsessed with movies, music and literature. My goal is to build a career in the nonprofit/NGO focusing on urban social issues. I plan to go to graduate school next year but want to spend some time in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia beforehand which prompted my joining CouchSurfing. I am sure I will want to see more places after this experience and maybe I can help others out down the road too.

PHILOSOPHY

Still working on it

Interests

I really enjoy spending time with friends and learning new things and expanding what I know through books, documentaries, etc.

Music, Movies & Books

Here's a short list: Apocalypse Now, Nirvana, Wong Gaa Wai, Don Delillo, Richard Price, Talib Kweli+Mos Def, Hou Hsiao Hsien, Terrance Malick, HEALTH, Portishead, Michael Chabon, The God of Small Things, Godard, Fellini, Bjork

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The most amazing place I've seen may be the Old City of Jerusalem. I'm not religious at all, but it is crazy to see a place with so much different significance for different religions along with being so politically contested while it is still preserved as an ancient city with functioning bazaars everywhere and Jews, Christians, Muslims and others mixing relatively peacefully.
One of the most intense experiences I've had was training for and running a marathon in High School. There was a special program in Oakland schools for marathon training. If you're interested, it is definitely doable, but not to be taken lightly.

Countries I've Visited

Canada, China, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Palestine, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Tanzania, United Kingdom, Viet Nam
