About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get a job that I love, before/during/after I graduate.

ABOUT ME

Well, I was born in Mexico and have lived there my whole life... I've spent most of my summers involved in an american summer camp as a camper, counselor and then office staff. I'm very much into technology and video games, so if you're tech savvy we can have a very good talk!

PS. my favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip.

PHILOSOPHY

Honesty, be real and be yourself! Be open to new experiences and meeting new people and cultures and respect them.
Basically: treat as you would like to be treated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can teach you about the Mexican culture + teach you Spanish! It's always better to have a native teach you their language in a casual way.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None, looking forward to!

Interests

Technology, sports (volleyball, basketball, tennis, soccer), food, and video games. Always keen for an adventure !
I like to spend my time reading about technology or visiting new places (restaurants and cafés specially!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing things I've seen are the companies down at Silicon Valley! My major is Computer Science so to visit my Mecca (twice!) is definitely an awestruck and the most amazing experience I've had (yet).
I can add to my list vanpacking the east coast of Australia, definitely a learning experience and I got to know myself better.
