CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Hello everyone! My name is Yaning, or you can call me Stefana if you like, I think I am an outgoing and open-minded girl.

Now I moved to Minneapolis, United Statues, trying to develop the city now! I am living with my Boyfriend ANDY(you can see his smile in my profile pic) who is still a master student in University of Minnesota Twin Cities in financial mathematics. He is also an open-minded and outgoing guy, now we are trying to develop the nature in the non-winter season!(It's s hiking season now!)

NOW WE ARE ON THE ROAD TRIP OF UNITED STATES!!!!
WE WOULD LIKE TO MEET YOU GUUYS ON THE WAY!!!!

Currently I am a freelance artist/designer and I was majoring in architecture in University of Applied Arts Vienna and I am also working as a Photographer, most of the time I do portraits and wedding pictures for people, sometimes I do landscape ones for website&magazines.

If you are interested in my photography, there is selected works on facebook, you can click this: https://www.facebook.com/StefanaAnPhotography

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have done my first really good experience in couchsurfing in Spain, and I did it in Germany for the second time. I really like go some other interesting places in Europe, and now I can't host people, but if you come to Vienna, maybe I can show you around even though my German is not good.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Well, I knew CS for a long time and I love it! And, I did my really good CS experience in Spain and Germany the last year, and I am gonna try more!

Interests

Travel,photography,design,singing,swimming,tennis,cooking

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I travelled to Africa 2011, with another girl, and we travelled alone! I took a lots of pictures and hold a personal photography show in China.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you basic Chinese. I can teach you how to cook some Chinese food. I can teach you something about design, about architecture, about photograhy...something like that.

As you can see, I lived in Europe for years, so if you wanna hear something in Europe I might also can share my experiences for you.

Since I worked as a photographer, maybe I can do pictures for you for free while traveling!

Countries I've Visited

Congo, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Kenya, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, United States
