First and foremost... we have to respect everybody! That's basic.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Leaving my country and the people I love the most in order to come to Europe to study classical music, specifically in Hungary with its beautiful but crazy language :)

Backpacking in Poland for four days with my boyfriend in order to attend Paul McCartney's concert in Warsaw. One of the best nights ever!!!!

I got the chance to sing in a choir at the fantastic Durham Cathedral in the UK,

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I am musician, I would be happy to help with this topic to those who want it. Of course I can teach Spanish :)
I am not the best chef around the planet but if you are interested in preparing Colombian food, I can help you out.
I want to learn German!

Soy músico, podría colaborarle con esto a quien lo necesite; aclaro que no soy la mejor cocinera que tiene la humanidad pero si quieren aprender algo de cocina colombiana también les puedo ayudar.

¡Quisiera aprender a hablar alemán!
