About Me

I'm a 27 french girl, from the south west of France, near the ocean, the mountains and the border with Spain. I'm passionate about cinema and arts. I'm lucky cause I'm working with my cinema passion (films festivals, movietheater programmation, movie directors development helping...). I'm now working in Paris in a documentary films training centre. Before, I used to live in Madagascar, where I worked in a french cultural center, specialised in cinema, and then in South Africa. I know quite well African cinema since.
I like travelling and discovering new ways of creating, working, thinking, living.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting new people, other cultures and countries, having fun and laughing are essential to me.
I'm sure hosting foreigners and show them how french people could be welcoming and are not only arrogant people can change stereotypes. Couchsurfing is a huge network of generosity and things like that are essential to change our world !
