About Me

August to October 2022 I'm traveling throughout Europe to meet people, network and explore where I could move to in a year or two to do international policy/NGO Public Health

I love to travel to see new things and meet new people.
Volunteer with political stuff, dance salsa, learn languages

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people, hearing their stories. I love listening to things like StoryCorps and other collections of peoples life stories. The reason I travel is to see new things and learn and challenge my approach.

I am looking to move back to Europe in the next two years to work on international policy work (change the world!)


International Policy for survivors of crimes (trafficking, sex/domestic abuse) and prevention through public health in developing countries

Music, Movies, and Books

I love to listen to all audiobooks! I go through 2 to 4 a week! Anything from mysteries to novels, to learning a new language or history of a country.
I will listen to and dance to any music that isn't screaming/angry
I don't watch movies much, but anything that isn't horror. Documentaries these days are so great!!
