About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to help make this world a better place.

ABOUT ME

I am a person who enjoys life and gets involved in her community. I perceive myself as someone playful and easygoing.I like to cook and eat, to relax as well as being active, to party or stay home with my roomates, all the same! Discovering tendances and cultures is important to me, therefore I can`t wait to travel some more and host more people!

PHILOSOPHY

« Soyons réalistes, exigeons l'impossible!» - Che Guevara

Active listening is the key to a lot of problems.

Ill always try to make this world a better place and I think Couchsurfing is a good start!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My roomates and I are both certified and we try to accomodate as well as learning from as much people as we can! I try to have as many couches and matresses as possible in order to be able to host more people at the same time :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It's been some years already that I am on Couchsurfing ! My rommates and I are openminded people, always happy to share our appartement! I got to surf couches for the 1st time in San Francisco, it was amazing and now I am visintg Franc, Spain and Germany again! I hope I will be able to couch in those locations as well :D

Interests

I like to discover and learn through people, books, cinema, music and visual arts.

I go to some of Montreal film festivals, like FESTIVAL DU NOUVEAU CINEMA or to FANTASIA FILM FESTIVAL, which is my favorite one ! specialized in serie B, horror, asian, independent and out of the box movies!

I am currenlty part of a choir called " Les chanteurs du Brouhaha!" Brouhaha being a local brewery :) We sing from traditional french canadian songs to classical and medieval parts. A young and dynamic group who just have fun singing together and drinking afterwards!

I love going to museums, galleries and artist centres the most! I am currently a technical director intern at Eastern Bloc(artist run center in MTL) and we are working on SIGHT & SOUND : Science Faction, a new media festival.

I was involved in the QUEBEC STUDENT MOVEMENT : "Printemps Érable" and am working towards a more horizontal Fine Arts Student association at my University.

I also am a drawing/visual arts teacher for kids aged 5 to 12 and am passionate about it! They are just amazing.

Music, Movies & Books

ROMERO, George A. SCORSESE, Martin. SCOTT, Ridley. SULEIMAN, Elia. TARANTINO, Quentin. VAN SANT, Gus. VON TRIER, Lars. ZOMBIE, Rob.

Question MUSIQUE, j'aime beaucoup l'électro-pop, électro-swing, le dub, new wave, hip-hop,trap, world beat, comme : DEBRUIT, OH NO!, A TRIBE CALLED RED, LEMON BUCKET ORKESTRA, KAYTRANADA, TNGHT, BEIRUT, DIE ANTWOORD, MAD PROFESSOR, IGGY AZALEA, AZEALIA BANKS, LE1F, BLACK DICE, GANG GANG DANCE, TRENTEMOLLER, SANTOGOLD, SPOEK MATHAMBO, KANYE WEST, SWEAT.X, ETC.

I like a lot comic BOOKS like : PREACHER, Y THE LAST MAN, WALKING DEAD, 100 BULLETS ...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The Student Movement in Quebec really changed my perception of a society. It helped me better understand the political mechanism and how I can make a difference as an individual.
and sadly how :«No justice, No peace ...»«La police au service des riches et des fascistes» is quiet true in Montreal as well, but I strongly believe in change!

The Gay Parade in Berlin was quite something, I've never been in such a crazy street party!

I bungeed in Costa Rica with one of my friend. Jumping off a cliff was almost a near-death experience. I am not sure I liked it, but it was definitely to try.

Surfing in Costa-Rica, even though I am not always able to stand on the board and step on the beach, just to feel the power of the water under the board is incredibly beautiful and scary at the same time.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can probably make you discover great FILMS!
I can share my INVOLVEMENT experiences.
I can show you basic SINGING techniques :)
I can play BOARD GAMES for hours!
I can make you do cool simple ART CRAFTS.

Id love to have another shot at SURFING, id like to try new SPORTS, to try new DRINKS, to try new FOOD, to learn to COOK it maybe!
