About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To eat and drink my way through France :)

ABOUT ME

I finished my first year of medical school in Boston and am using my summer to explore France. It has always been a dream of mine to live in France. I am currently studying the French language (for the first time!) in Lyon and trying to explore the surrounding regions. I am the middle of three sisters, 100% Korean, born in San Francisco, CA, and have lived most of my life on Long Island (about 20-30mins to New York City).

PHILOSOPHY

As long as you do no harm to yourself and to others, try everything once.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

This is the first time I am using couchsurfing, and I hope it is as amazing as what my friends have told me!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed for one weekend in Dijon. Plan on surfing some more and going to CS events!

Interests

I LOVE to cook, to eat, to bake, to drink, to read, to learn, to sing, to ballroom dance, and to explore new cultures/cuisines.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Pop/top 40, hip-hop, reggae, R&B, jazz, blues, classical/orchestral/opera. Basically anything except heavy metal, electronica, trance/house, or hard rock. Books: I am a true book worm. I read very quickly and am trying to work my way through the Classics right now. Currently reading Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (the English translation :-P)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

To hold a real human brain in medical school. It was so moving and awe-inspiring to hold such a tiny object that contained all of a person's thoughts, values, knowledge, and a lifetime of memories.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a passion for food and drink. I would love to meet people whom I can share knowledge/learn from.

Countries I've Visited

Australia, Korea, Republic of, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In
