About Me

Auditor as a profession, but a technology nerdy fanatic at heart! I love traveling, meeting new friends, conversing good stories, and talking about movie, food, music, love, and life! My dream is to visit over 100 countries and make friends in all 7 continents!
I believe solo travelling is the best way to understand the world you've been to, to meet people you've never dreamt of talking to, and to understand yourself on a deeper level. If you open your door for me, I'll open my mind to you, and let's create some wonderful time together ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's great opportunity to meet new people and travel when you're young, get a lot of time on your hand, but under a low budget. I've tried living in a hotel, living in a hostel, staying at friends', tried meetup groups even for a short visit, even dating apps! But still it's difficult to have meaning (or friendly) encounters and get recommendations from the locals

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Solo road trip for 11 days!!! All the way from west coast (Bay Area) to the great midwest (Ohio)
It was such a long trip but I was airbnbing all the way and met so many great people / interesting families , witnessed so many interesting scenes on highway, in the city, in the tourist attractions ;) best trip in my entire college life!

Teach, Learn, Share

Constantly learning new language, new technologies and news happening at the stock markets (including crypto currencies obviously)
Love sharing new restaurants to try out, new stocks to follow (LOL) also great places to visit.
I've been volunteered for a couple of times to teach kids (grade 3-5) about financial literacy, I've done with through company events but still they were valuable experiences for me. It makes me smile each time watching those children doing budgeting and understanding the differences between their needs and wants for material goods.
