About Me

My parents are both from Hong Kong. I grew up in Queens and now I live in Brooklyn. I received my BA in Asian Studies in 2013, worked for a year, and will next be getting a BS in Biology in 2015. I'm applying to med school at the moment and will likely continue to stay in the nyc area for the next 5-6 years.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I started Couchsurfing in summer 2014 during a three month trip through SE Asia and India. I would love to host here in ny, but I'm still living with my parents and sister who are...not quite open to the idea :\
