About Me


Finish my degree and travel all over the world to take photographs


I'm an island girl from the Caribbean, born and raised. I've lived on Curacao until I was 22, finished my bachelor's degree and decided to move to the Netherlands. I've been living there in Rotterdam for a year and a half now studying International Law. I'm currently on exchange in South Africa and residing in Potchefstroom. I enjoy photography, film, different cultures and traveling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've just signed up for couch surfing and I'm looking forward to my first experience. I hope to host for others myself when I go back to the Netherlands
