About Me

I grew up in Lanzhou, Gansu, China, and moved to Houston, Texas, USA by myself when I was 16. Two year later, I went to Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA for college, and after graduation, I worked at PwC Boston as a public accountant for a year. Now I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada working for PwC Toronto.

Planning a trip to Havana, Cuba in August 2018. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am passionate about history and anthropology, and those are the main reasons why I travel around the world. I love connecting with locals everywhere I go and hearing about stories from other travelers. When I travel and share other people's apartments, I am a very respectful guest, quiet, clean, organized and responsible.
