Join Couchsurfing to see Riley’s full profile. It’s free!
Hey! I'm a student at Michigan State studying French and math. I'm hoping to become a high school teacher after I graduate. Traveling and getting to know people are my favorite things; I love hearing all about other people's lives and stories. Everyone has something worth sharing.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Well, I'm a strong believer of giving all you can to others, so I partly want to offer up the space I can to people who just need a place.
All of the experiences I've had with couch surfing have given me a much better experience with a new friend than any other way of visiting a city.
I love meeting new people - especially those who can tell me about their lives and the place I'm visiting. Who better than a local?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In high school I studied abroad in Senegal, West Africa, stayed with a host family, and volunteered their in a kindergarten and kids' health center. The people I met there and things I learned about so many different cultures made me super passionate about people and the world.
