About Me


To start my own English school.


I'm American-born, of Chinese heritage and from Alaska.

I teach at an English preschool in Japan. ^_^

I really don't know what else to say. I guess you'd have to meet me to know more about me!


To live an open-minded life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Mainly surfing, but I will definitely host once I'm settled into my own apartment!


I've couchsurfed a lot in various places in Japan. Each time I'd been welcomed by hospitable hosts and made new friends. It's really a precious experience.
