Introduce Yourself - December 2018

Hello everyone! Welcome to Local Guides Connect. Please take a moment to introduce yourself to our community.


As “Introduce Yourself” threads can be lengthy, we start a new one each month and lock past threads. You can check past threads, like November's, to see who recently joined and where they’re from (simply search for "Introduce Yourself"). If you're new, please use this thread to post your “I'm new” or “Hello world” posts. We’ll merge any posts we find elsewhere with this thread to keep things organized.


I’ll kick off the December introductions.

  1. Name: Christina
  2. Location: New York, NY
  3. What I love about being a Local Guide: I love helping guide others to explore new places through taking photos. Since joining Local Guides, I’m continually amazed by the passion and dedication of Local Guides, and the positive change they are making in the world around them.
  4. My favorite thing to explore: I have a lot of favorite things to explore and it’s hard to pick only one! When I travel to a new city, I like to photograph my experiences—whether it’s enjoying a tasty dish at a restaurant, documenting the local life in a street scene, or being outdoors capturing nature.

5. Fun fact about me: I love all kinds of music and learned how to play the viola and piano when I was young, and am currently learning to play the guitar. I was raised in a musical family—my siblings and my father each played different instruments and would play together as a string quartet. I didn’t enjoy practicing when I was younger, but now that I’m older I’m very appreciative of my experience learning music, as well as the fun memories of making music with my family.

What do I love about being a Local Guide? 
I connected with Google Map a long time ago.  I regularly try to contribute by Rating, Details Reviews, Photos and Videos to the Google Map. I started to contribute to Local Guide Connect from this year. When I started contributing to Local Guide Connect, then I found this is a global platform where I can represent my country to the world regarding my country culture, tourist place, historical place etc. After that, I always try to find things that can represent my beautiful country. Moreover, I also want to post my travel and meet up write-up here. I love photography a lot! I found another platform where I can get technical support for photography. It is a very good platform for learning technical new updates of Google Map, 360 Photography and other terms. 

Participated 94th, 95th, 96th and 97th meet up the organized by Bangladesh Local Guides. Bangladesh Local Guides is going to organize the 100th meet up soon. 

My favorite thing to explore: I like food, travel and Dhaka City where I live. If I got time, I always try to explore my city and country as much as I can.  People come Dhaka city here from different districts of Bangladesh.

 Fun fact about me: I love to do photography, creative design, connecting with the local and International communities. I love to travel home and abroad in my leisure time. I already visited Russia, Turkey, China, Azerbaijan, Indonesia, Malaysia and India. I am lucky to get chances to taste different countries food and learnt about their culture. I also want to share those experiences with all the local guides all over the world. My wish is to visit each and every country in this world!
