About Me

First, I’m an African 🇸🇩 Born in the 🇺🇸 America of Louisiana Cajun/Creole and Gullah/Geechee 🇺🇸 Mende/Krio 🇸🇱 Balanta/Kriol 🇬🇼 Criolo/Kriolu 🇨🇻 descent, looking for friendships, professional connections, networking opportunities, relocation and travel companions. My goal is to meet like-minded individuals to have intellectual conversations and enjoy exploring the world. My motivation to travel is making countless friends globally. One of my many satisfying pleasures in life is having the opportunity to travel the world and enjoy the enriching cultural and social experiences of traveling and living abroad. By making friends and connecting with others via Couchsurfing, this will give me the opportunity to network with other like-minded individuals and building bridges of communication with the world. I am deeply committed to learning about other cultures and languages. Finally, I believe cultural sharing leads to cultural understanding. If you have questions, please feel free to ask. My goal for the rest of 2020 and 2021 is to visit my African ancestral homelands; the Sudan, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau (Bijagós Islands) and Cabo Verde.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Looking to connect with other travelers both domestic and abroad, as well as make lifelong friendships.
