About Me


Meet new friends from all walks of life! Lifelong learning. Spreading love.


Hello Friends! My name is Nikka, fellow couchsurfer and life-enthusiast.

I think my purpose in life is to live the best life I can and affect the people around me positively. It's still very much a work in progress and thus I am an open book, welcoming new people and new experiences with an open mind and heart! I live life with a childlike wonder and am perpetually curious about everything and everyone around me.

I graduated UC Berkeley and was originally headed to law school and Business school before I was whisked away by my love for entrepreneurship. I founded my own social startup, which had the mission to connect people in each city in a more productive and purposeful way. I left the day-to-day operations of that startup and am now working on other projects. I would like to continue encouraging people to live their best lives and live out their dreams through support of entrepreneurship and holistic wellness.

I treasure great conversation, from heart-to-heart talks to silly nonchalant jokes that bring about laughter that echoes off the walls. I have been told that I can be quite a comedian at times ;) But I say I just like to keep things positive.

I value honesty, respect, loyalty, friendship, lifelong learning, adventure and family. There are morals in life we must hold on to.

Looking forward to meeting YOU soon!


"Be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle."
"Striving past a woman of success, to become a woman of infinite value."
Life is not short, life is a continuous cycle through many lifetimes...I strive to be conscious and aware of every act that brings me closer to my highest self.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love meeting people from all walks of life. You can find me in different cities, either hosting someone at my own abode or being hosted by someone at their own :)


I've couchsurfed along the East Coast while building and promoting my startup, around California, and also briefly while I was in South America
