Hi AirBnB community! I'm from San Francisco and lived in India for a few years before moving to the U.K. for graduate school (both my professional work and my masters degree are in the field of public health/global health). I recently graduated and have moved back to the San Francisco/Bay Area. I have a love for the visual and performing arts, basking in nature, working on social change and public health issues, and learning about different cultures and their histories. I'm a very respectful and appreciative guest wherever I stay. I look at each new experience in any place I visit in the world as an opportunity to learn, grow, be inspired, and make lovely new friends. I used AirBnB several times throughout my European travels this year - both staying with hosts in their apartment and renting out empty apartments - and I have truly enjoyed all my experiences through AirBnB. What a great global community!
