Sobre mí

CURRENT MISSION

Travel Europe

ABOUT ME

I am 21, from the U.S., and will be studying in Cambridge, England during the Michaelmas (Fall) 2009 term. I study Theology, Spanish and Communications. I also play the saxophone in the Wind Symphony at my university. I have been lucky enough to have a parent who works in the travel industry, so I have traveled a great deal and will continue to do so as long as I am able.

PHILOSOPHY

I feel like I am still young enough to not have to have this figured out yet.

Por qué estoy en Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am just a young member of the Couch Surfing community and haven't yet explored how I can use it. Some friends of mine CouchSurfed in Scotland last year and had a great experience, so I am excited to give it a try. When I return from Europe, I will be happy to host people as they travel through Chicago or Saint Louis!

Algo increíble que he hecho

Most recently, I climbed the Great Wall of China, which was an amazing experience. My trips to Guatemala, though, have left the most lasting effects. Seeing such extreme poverty first hand really changes your perspective on a lot of things. Spending two weeks in a school working with children who thirst for education because it is their only way out of an endless cycle of everything that goes with poverty (drug/alcohol abuse, gangs, violence, etc) is humbling. It was an honor to work with the wonderful Guatemalans who work to help their own people succeed.
