About Me


To teach and learn from this beautiful world we live in!


I'm an international traveller who speaks 5 languages and achieved my dream mission of travelling 5 continents by the age of 28! Born in London, UK to Chinese parents from Hong Kong (once upon a time a British colony), so I am a BBC (British-born Chinese). I've always had a great passion for learning languages, travelling and exploring the world. Raised in London (UK), lived/studied/worked in Barcelona (Spain) and Taipei (Taiwan)... Now currently residing in the "cidade maravilhosa" of Rio de Janeiro. Happy and blessed to be in paradise :-)


Life is too short to be anything but happy!! :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately I don't have a couch to offer, but I have other talents to offer which are teaching English and Chinese as I'm a qualified CELTA-trained instructor with more than 5 years of educating those who have a desire to learn a beautiful new language.


Hiking, travelling, volunteering, cookery, samba (dance & music), skiing, meeting new people and learning to surf!

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a great fan of books that have been magically transformed into movies, such as The Lovely Bones, Twilight, The Notebook etc.

Also a HUGE fan of psychological movies, such as Shutter Island, Inception, Momento, Mulholland Drive etc.

I love books and movies that make you think and question the world, food for thought.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Visiting Gruta da Acaia on Ilha Grande has been the most MAGICAL experience of my Brazilian travels so far!! A slice of heaven on earth :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I love learning Portuguese and about Brazilian culture. Interested in language and cultural exchanges with locals.

I am a professional and CELTA-qualified native English and Chinese teacher offering private and group classes in Rio de Janeiro. Please send me an email if you are interested:
