About Me


get to know the world, with it's verious aspects


I am an open minded 22 year old student, who likes to travel around the world, to meet new people and discover new places and cultures. I am spontaneous and open hearted. Since I love traveling, I took part in many different exchange programs during school and hosted already students from more than 5 different countries.

I like to call myself multicultural, since I am part German, Japanese, American, French and Kanadian. I spend alot of my childhood with my family in California, but I grew up in Germany. Moreover I also spend a highschool year in Japan and I fell immediately in love with that country and it's people.

Since 2010 I am working as a volunteer for the exchange organisation Youth for Understand, an organsation that sends students on an exchange years. I participate on fairs, make Q&A meetings and different seminars for german students going abroad and foreigen exchange students, who come to Germany for their exchange year.


Neither diamonds can be made without friction nor humans without challenges.

The past is history, the future a mistery, today is a gift of god. That's why it is called the present.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


So far I haven't had alot of experience with CouchSurfing, since I'm new to it, but I hope I can change that as soon as possible.


Most of my time I spend working and going to school, doing sports or working with exchange students. If I have any spare time left over, I love spending it with friends, having a chat over coffee/drink.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I spend a year in Japan as an exchange student, without knowing a single word in japanese nor knowing much about the culture and where exactly I will live. It was the most amazing time in my life. "Exchange is't not a year in life, it's a live in a year!"
