About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Active listening. Learning and living the reality of another culture

ABOUT ME

I am Taiwanese-Australian, currently a university student (Law, Economics)

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

People are the same everywhere. Everyone is beautiful and has a story you can learn from and live through.
