To learn everything I can from everything and everyone I encounter...and to have a blast all along the way!
I'm a fun loving, life living optimist trying to find myself and figure out the world through my many adventures.
Currently living the good life in Chicago and finished grad school with my masters in Couple and Family Therapy at the Family institute at Northwestern!
I love people, and think that everyone has something to give and to teach. All we really need to do is listen and have an open heart and mind.
I'm an old soul, way wiser than my years. At 25, I have seen a whole lot in my days, and it really forces me to see the world differently, and to make the most of every day that i'm alive.
Not to be cheesy by quoting Gandhi, but I strongly believe that people need to "be the change they wish to see in the world" because if everyone does, we might actually come close one day to seeing the world the way we want to see it.
He who has a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'."
I live everyday like it's my last. I have an extreme sense of purpose, and always have a full water bottle, a pen and paper, and a good song at the ready.
All we have is here and now. Might as well make the most of every moment.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have participated in couch surfing around the world by meeting up with fellow travelers for adventures, drinks, and site seeing, and have even stayed over with a few! I am just now finally able to host travelers at my apartment in chicago!
Traveling is probably my greatest passion, but i also love writing, yoga, piano, painting, spinning poi and diabolo, writing poetry, learning languages, photography, taking care of animals, meeting new people, eating wonderful food, psychology, and writing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I taught a two year old girl to open snap peas - She was amazed at the little peas inside!
We should all learn from children how to look at the world with wonder and to see everything as new, and fascinating. They remind me that this world and that life itself is magical.
I also went skydiving over cape cod. Do it. Whoever you are, whenever you can. It is the most unbelievable and liberating experience you can have.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm really great at helping people with their relationships. This could mean either romantic or familial, or friendships or whatever. I've had so many experiences in my life that have helped me have a natural knack for helping people through their troubled times.
I also like to consider myself a pretty good writer. So if anyone needs help editing a paper, you can definitely give me a holler. (limited to english only for now, sorry!)
