About Me

Aloha, I am born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and have lived on different hawaiian islands since then. During college I travelled internationally but after travelling I realized that there is so much depth to Hawaiian culture that I wanted to root down into. For the past couple of years I've been anchoring myself in Hawaii and its culture. Now I'm ready again to expand out, be inspired by travel, and connect with different people. New Zealand has always been the one other place that I've felt at home in so Ive moved to NZ for a year on a working holiday visa!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Since I'm in NZ for a year, couchsurfing would be a good way to travel the country and figure out which town I'd like to base myself in. I'd really like to get a sense of the town from someone who lives there and knows it well.
