About Me

I love to travel so much I studied it -> Anthropology, Biology, and Chemistry grad that pivoted. I consider myself to be an open-minded, global citizen having lived and worked in various countries and am multi racial too. Guess 😊

I love learning, whether it be organically through my own trial, errors, and travels or through my encounters with others. I also love teaching others whatever I have learned through my own experiences.

***I am verified and vaxxed 😊

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Apart from my passion for traveling, to hear people's stories, experience different cultures, and expand my mind to different world perspectives.

I have been solo traveling for over a decade and now want to meet other people to share my travel experiences with.

Interests

Laughter, tea, wine, being alone or being in great company, meditation & self reflection, learning about History, Art, Science and all in between. I enjoy venturing off the beaten path and lifting weights.

Love high places with a birds eye view, watching the sun set and eating native cuisine, singing, dancing (bachata, merengue and salsa), photography (insta-Quiana.Berry) , journaling, laughing, making new friends from all walks of life, taking scenic bicycle ride, raving, drinking wine

Please note: Im not afraid to take a bad review hit for saving the next woman trauma, sanity or safety. I leave honest reviews now that Im in a position to give back to CS community.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Don't necessarily consider this 'amazing' but athletically speaking:

I was a successful gymnast in both rhythmic and artistic gymnastics who won various handstand walking contests. Also I won long-distance running competitions and was successful in Judo, beating people more senior than me. I am not as competitive now but like to stay active.

When not kicking butt:
I am an advocate, have done research to fight climate change, and continue to give back to my community through social good causes. I want to make a positive impact on the world and I want to bring others along with me
