Join Couchsurfing to see Amélie’s full profile.
I like to believe we can't describe ourselves and become something new at every moment. But I can still say that I am from Montreal QC, Africa and the Mediterranean sea. Currently I am trying to express myself in different ways, I write poetry, songs, novels and I just enjoy being anything I feel to become at the moment. I just finished my studies in philosophy, I wrote a thesis about the stigmatization of around sex work vs. the non-stigmatisation of any other jobs. I like to talk about human alienation and social norms. I also like to not take things seriously and just wander around and discover our beautiful and messy planet.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I had great experiences on CS so far, I'd like to keep meeting lovely people. I am really passionate about my city so I'd be more that happy to help you discover Montréal.
I'm passionate about philosophy because I am curious about everything: arts, humans, nature, science, society, politics, etc. I also enjoy reading, drawing and dancing.
Music, Movies, and Books
Some of my favorite movies: Deathproof, Life is beautiful, Salo, Breathless, Je vous salue Sarajevo.
Books: Oscar Wilde, Kundera, Celine, Sartre, and many others, mostly French literature and philosophy.
Music: mostly hip hop and pop at the moment, but really almost any time of music from catchy pop to punk. I could spend years listening to Lana Del Rey and Cardi B albums.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Living in the street in New York during winter.
Hitchhiking across Canada from west to est.
Writing a philosophy thesis about the concept of body commodification.
Teach, Learn, Share
I don't consider myself skilled enough at anything, but I'm always open to go to adventures, share my perspective about anything and get to know others views.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I have one roommate, she's also on CS. We kinda know how it's like to travel alone as a woman* and be a CS guest, which does not necessarily always feels safe. Our space is inclusive and safe for women, non-binary, gender non-conforming, LGTBQ+. :)
I live in a big apartment, so there should often be some space in a guest room, the living room or the floor if you are a large group. I can share you my knowledge about Montreal and tips about travelling on a budget around Canada.
