About Me

Economics student in my third year at an American university. Currently in Paris for an exchange semester.

Hate uncomfortable silences, so I like to talk to fill in the silence. But at the same time if you require me to be more quiet, then I am fine with that too. An easygoing person who isn't too fussy about anything, I would like to use my youth to collect stories so that I can boast to my grandchildren in the future.

Also, a million apologies that currently I am not accepting guests. Not trying to freeload on other people's goodwill but just that currently I live in my university dormitory so it's close to impossible to host someone. I will update as soon as I move out of college though! Sorry...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hoping to get an authentic experience at each country that I visit. I dislike packaged tours because they are too regulated and manufactured. I like the freedom of roaming around and exploring different cities at my own pace and time.
I am also a very hardy person. Have slept in terrible conditions and is not picky with food. Besides, the chance to meet locals who are not working in the tourism industry is an invaluable one to me.

Interests

Watching football (my dreams of going pro died ~10 years ago and I hung up my boots, never again)
Movies (love the thrillers and thinking movies; no rom-coms please) Christopher Nolan!
Chatting with people and learning about their culture
Geopolitics

Anything light or interesting.
