About Me

CURRENT MISSION

(re) Educating myself through world travel. I spent a lot of time living without really understanding, but each place I travel helps fill in the gaps of my education.

ABOUT ME

I've been called thoughtful, stoic, and fun...those don't really go together, but I somehow make it work . I like eco-touring, dancing and food. I also like to find nice cozy places where I can read a book, drink a nice tea, and watch the world. I'm pretty grounded and pride myself on being practical and supportive to others. I am an RPCV and always looking for an opportunity to serve/empower others with dignity and humility.

PHILOSOPHY

I try to surprise myself as much as I can, push my own limits and challenge myself. I'm all about personal growth!

When I was living in San Francisco one summer, my roommate was a part of the Couchsurfing community. We got to host and meet great folks. It was a lot of fun and I hope to keep doing it forever! I was a part of CS community while living in Shenzhen (miss you guys!) and that really made me a CS lifer 😂
