About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am moving to Belo Horizonte, Brazil to teach English for a year.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in London but lived in Brazil back in 2010 for 8 months as part of my university degree. I studied Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies. I have been working in London for two years as a personal assistant in a leading company but decided to take the plunge and get back to Brazil!
I love sunsets on the beach, sunbathing, eating pão de queijo, drinking agua de coco, listening to samba music and trying to dance it, meeting people and learning about their culture, swimming, trying to understand Brazilian television (I love Malhacao!), cycling (I have just come back from a cycling trip across Myanmar which took 7 days), Beyoncé, avocado on toast, ice cream, going to the cinema and theatre, traveling and getting to know places.

I hate milk!

PHILOSOPHY

-There is nothing in life to fear.
-The best things in life are free.
- Carpe diem

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Before I go to Belo Horizonte to teach, I am spending 4 days in Rio and need somewhere to stay :)

I couchsurfed in Rio for the first time with David Campelo back in 2010- it was great!

Interests

Going to the theatre, I love to cook and experiment with many different ingredients and ways of cooking. I could not live without music. Life is so much better with a good beat and tune! I enjoy dancing but am not very good- I would like to learn some Hip Hop and Street. The cinema I also adore. Art galleries and museums also interest me, I like very much to learn about other cultures and traditions.

Central do Brasil, Cidade de Deus, An Education, Blood Diamond, The Blind Side, Pride and Prejudice, Avatar, Desperately Seeking Susan, Grease, Footloose,
