About Me

My name is pronounced like 'shay-na'.

I'm made in America, and grown on English soil. I grew up in a slow town, but now I'm a city girl (only by technicality, though). I used to think London transportation was great until I went to Tokyo.

I have been drifting through the world for the last year, but now I will grow roots in London to finish my degree.

I want to return some of the kindness given to me by people I stayed with on CS whilst I travelled. I don't want the CS experience to end, so now it's my turn to be a hostess!
My hope is that I will give a kind, warm, safe space for people to fall in love with my city the way that I once did. Whoever you are and whatever you bring, I am sure that I want to know you

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would like to meet people who have a similar philosophy to me about sharing, being open and the value of placing trust in strangers.
My housemates are new to couchsurfing, so in the beginning I will only be hosting girls on their own to put them at ease. So sorry for the discrimination! It makes me sad too.
