About Me

I am a former LNA looking to get out the small state of Vermont and explore the world. I am in the process of trying to launch a travel blog while teaching English in the countries I visit. As of February 1st, 2017, I will be living in China for 5 months for a teaching internship. After that, I have plans to explore the entirety of the US via road-trip. I'm unsure of my plans after that but I hope to continue travelling with the primary goal of providing information about these other countries on my blog as well as learn as much as I can about other cultures and fully immerse myself in them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I joined Couchsurfing with hopes of making many new friends and enjoy life as we know it. I wish to continue travelling and have hopes that Couchsurfing can help me fulfil that dream especially if I happen to have no other place to stay on my way through town.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to a very wide variety of music, I typically enjoy anything playing on the radio. It's very difficult to choose just one movie or even a few so instead, I will list some of my favourite actors/producers: Will Smith, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr, Hayao Miyazaki, Tim Burton, and Jackie Chan.
The same idea goes for books as well, there are quite a few books I enjoy, most if not all of them are fiction/fantasy series. However, I do enjoy educational reading as in subjects that are currently relevant such as business, technology, or even language.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The decision to take my future into my own hands and going forward with the TEFL internship program that is sure to change everything.
