About Me

Hello! 你好! こんにちは。I'm Andy Joshua. Thank you for checking my profile!!

I'm an English teacher working in a local high school. Language learner, gym-goer, solo traveler, I'm passionate about networking, meeting new people, cultural exchange, traveling, photography and getting close to nature. I'm very easy-going and willing to learn and accept new ideas.

Life isn't always easy for us and we are constantly facing challenges that keep testing our true characters. However, life is too previous to be wasted on negativity. "Make each day count" has inspired me to live each day as if it were the last. And I hope that the lessons I'll be able to get from every couch surfer help make me a better person.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Once I visited Chengdu and a foreigner who was then working in the city accommodated me and it made me feel so nice. And that was when I knew couchsurfing and I think the idea is awesome! I want to make people feel the same way I felt and I'd love to make people love the city of Chongqing.


TV shows, swimming, traveling, mahjong, pop music, outdoor activities

Learning languages!!

Currently I'm learning Japanese and after that I wish I had time and energy to learn one more language, maybe German or Spanish. I had so much fun in the process of learning to speak different languages and using them to communicate with native speakers.

Music, Movies, and Books

Forrest Gump
The Shawshank Redemption
Dead Poets Society
La Vita è bella

Friends is my all time favorite American sitcom.

I don't read much, unfortunately, but two of my favorite English novels are:
The Great Gatsby
The Catcher in the Rye

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Volunteering for an international summer camp and meeting foreigners from over seven countries and getting to talk to each one of them.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a teacher so I'd be glad to teach anyone who'd like to learn Chinese and English. I'm pretty strict (lol) but also fun and patient. You can feel free to ask questions and I'm always ready to answer.

I love telling and listening to interesting life stories. So don't hesitate to talk to me. I am one crazy talker (!!!) but also a good listener.

Countries I’ve Visited

China, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vatican City State

Countries I’ve Lived In
