About Me


Master the Portuguese language in Brazil!


I'm 25, from California but currently living in Florianopolis Brazil doing an internship in tourism for 3 months, I study in Karlsruhe,Germany and am finishing up my bachelor's degree in International Tourism Management.I moved to Germany in October 2008 to learn German and study International Tourism Management.I studied Germanistik for one year in Arizona, but I realized it wasn't right for me. My dream was to however move over here to Germany and experience a different country and learn the language!I enjoy living, and meeting people from all over the world!I lived in Cordoba, Argentina in 2011/2012/2013 for a total of a year working,studying and doing an internship and it was one of the best experiences of my life!I've been a Vegetarian for almost 15 years now, and don't plan on ever eating meat again! I'm down with animals :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived in another country, and adapted to the lifestyle and learned the language almost fluently, and still doing this :) // Seeing Buenos Aires from the airplane window...unbelieveable

Going to Lebanon and having the first hand experience that not all of the Middle East is really as dangerous or scary as it's made out to be!

Teach, Learn, Share

Don't hold back

TRAVEL! Find out about new places,people,customs, etc

Travel ALONE at some point as well! While traveling alone,I had the privilege of learning more about myself because I didn't always have to worry about others. It can be scary, but eye opening. I meet the most amazing people when I'm traveling alone!
