About Me


The pursuit of happiness~


"My culture gives me fire. My people give me strength. My words are a declaration of will. My work and my actions are a shout out to the world that no one is going to tell me what to do."


"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host & Couchsurf


It started off when a family friend from New York hooked me up with a housekeeping gig over the summer. From then on, I've met so many travelers like myself who've CSed and have hosted for others and have had a positive experience.

I've had a great CS experience during my travels so far and also having the opportunity to give back the generosity they've given to me thus far.


I love art & culture.

Live music, coffee joints, patisseries, dive bars, and hitting up the local festivals during my travels is my style. I love history and culture, usually spending my time at museums and galleries all day.

Other days, you'll find me bouldering indoors or outdoors, having fun touching new rocks and watching new beta.

I'm slowly converting to veganism but I'll never turn down street food, I'm kind of a dessert snob, and my comfort food will always be Filipino cuisine.
