About Me


Currently studying an undergrad degree, one day you'll know my name as a media journalist. My mission? Try new things, experience life, work hard, eventually be filthy rich and disgustingly successful. And to improve the world's grammar. Yes.


What to say... I'm pretty intelligent, love a good conversation, sensitive and empathic, kind, generous... Oh and modest. It's difficult to write one of these, I don't want to come off arrogant, but then I am asking to be invited into people's homes! Practically speaking, I'm tidy, clean, hygienic. Open-minded and opposed to all forms of discrimination. Very sociable. Generally cheerful and pretty difficult to annoy. Non-drinker, but really love going out and dancing the night away, go figure. Smoker, but wouldn't smoke inside even if the option was there. Just really want to enjoy life. Oh, I do a film and publishing degree, so I'm a big fan of TV and film, writing, theatre, music. Love the arts basically. I think that's it. I'm pretty normal.


That's still under construction, but at the moment a big one (however culturally atrocious it may be) is 'YOLO'.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Love going out, don't drink though, except the odd glass of wine. Big talker, conversation is my favourite. Always on hand to recommend a film or TV show. I can cook pretty well too, and love trying new foods and eating out.


None whatsoever. Bit nervous to be honest.


Film, TV, writing, theatre, music, literature, people, the world, food. And shoes. Never forget shoes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once saw a shooting star in Antigua. That was pretty cool :)

Teach, Learn, Share

What I have to teach tends to come up as and when. I think I do have knowledge to impart, but I don't know that it boils down into a single, fiercely intelligent tagline. A great woman once said to me 'stop living your life like it's a problem that needs to be solved' and that one stuck with me I guess.

I have so much to learn. I'm 21, teach me, seriously. I'm very aware that I'm very unaware.
