To learn, see, and live as much as I can!
A through and through New Yorker, I'm a current student who is looking to travel the world on a student budget. The most important thing about me is that I love my family and friends and without them I would be nothing. My first love is literature but I'm getting my degree in Public Policy to help change what I think is flawed in the world and help address the problems of post-conflict situations. I love a good laugh, good book, and good ride on the Subway. I'm up for anything and am more than open to answering any questions! I hope we can learn from each other!
Fear is a reality. But we must push through the fear and not let it stop us.
Don't see the obstacles. See the ways around them.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm new to the CS2 community and even though I can't share my couch (currently living with the parentals who are not cool with the idea) I hope to become more active when I get to participate, travel, and meet new people. And of course, by recommending the site to my friends.
Good movies, library books, dancing all night long, conflict resolution and development, laughing till you cry, British comedy, and good conversation.
