About Me


Become a better person) I am a newly graduate so I would like to find a good job with a great possibilities to travel)


I am very easy-going, friendly person who is always ready for new experience, new environment, new surroundings. I am very active and enthusiastic who is always engaged in some activities like hiking, scuba-diving, cycling, mount climbing, dancing etc. I love learning foreign languages and cultures and I think the best way to do so is communication. So I really enjoy meeting people, learning something new and sharing what I know and have.


Treat people the way you want to be treated. Be tolerant and respectful to every person despite his/her gender, nationality, interests, background.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am a freshmen in CouchSurfing.


There are some activities that really keep me in a flow. They are Dancing (Salsa, Bachata), Communication (Language exchange, intercultural programs, international parties), Physical exercise and Trip Planning. I am losing a track of time when I am doing those things. I also like any kind of outdoor activities, singing and public speaking (although I am not very good at it). Contrary to all above mentioned I really love theaters, musicals, galleries, opera and museums. I also can spend forever watching masterpieces, art and onstage performance.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Sea life!... I am not a good swimmer but I overcame the fear of the ocean and tried scuba-diving. I am still just beginner in diving but I have got a license already and not afraid of deep water anymore. It's an amazing experience, so inspiring and recharging.
2. During my Hawaii's trip i swam with sharks and dolphins. The dolphins were much more exciting because I could touch them, play and feed them while sharks kept me all the time tensed.
3. Mt. Fuji climbing... It was a tough trip which took 7.5 hours to get to the top and 3.5 hours to come back. But the emotions and feelings I had when I was watching sunset and sunrise above the clouds on the top of the highest and one of the most famous mountains in the Japan and in the world were amazing.
