About Me


I'm living in Italy for a year while getting my master's. So far I have really been enjoying it. The only downside for me, is that my husband can't be here to share it with me. I really enjoy getting to know new people and seeing new places.


Live and let live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm just really impressed with the community that this project has successfully built. Couchsurfing has been a huge part of my life in the past, but it's really amazing that it's happening in such a successful organized way. At the moment, I live in a very small studio apartment, so I don't have much to offer in terms of space and school is insanely busy for me so it would be difficult for me to host couchsurfers, but I will still entertain all requests and give it a shot.


When I was in Israel, I met a man named Bilal through another traveler who I met. When he found out that I was staying in a hostel, he offered his home to me and treated me like a member of his family. It was an experience that I will never forget for as long as I live.


Style is very important to me. It's not necessarily important that people wear designer clothing and goods, but it does matter that everyone be conscious of their aesthetic. I love to read, mostly fiction. I've been making jewelery on and off for years also. Now I mostly do it for myself for fun and occasionally as gifts.
