About Me

Hello guys :) Im a 19 year old student, currently on a gap year, who loves to travel and learn about other places and people. I was born in the United States, grew up in Germany and my parents are from Eritrea and Ethiopia, so i have always interacted with many different cultures. I am fluent in 4 languages and conversational in 6. My goal is to eventually visit every country in the world and I have been lucky enough to have visited more than 40 already.

I'm currently on a trip from Germany to India. It's been 8 months of budget travel and these are the countries I visited:
France, Spain, Monaco, Sweden, Czechia, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, Cyprus, Israel, Palestine, Jordan and Egypt. I'm excited to meet you in your country as well!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Im very curious about other cultures, food, history and traditions and the only way to really experience these is by interacting with locals. I sometimes have a hard time getting to know people when im travelling so Couchsurfing is the perfect solution for me!

Teach, Learn, Share

My message to the world is that we should realize that we all have more in common with each other than we have differences, so we should learn to love each other as much as we love ourselves and live peacefully.

What I Can Share with Hosts

With me you will have a fun time, great conversations and participate in cultural exchange. If you would be open to it, i will happily cook traditional East African food for you. Im also a very clean person so I will leave your place just as I found it. Hopefully I will see you soon ;)
