About Me


Active listening. Learning and embracing other people's realities.


I am Taiwanese-Australian, currently a uni student.

I love to dance.. but I am really quite clumsy, so you will see me drop things/fall over a lot. I am someone who can laugh at my own misfortune. My humour is quite dry and I like comedies where people die.

I am hoping to fall in love with a city on my travels. My ideal city is a place, where i can leave my front door and always manage to get lost or try something new. Melbourne is a city I love.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
