About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finding my path in life.

ABOUT ME

I enjoy politics, music, cooking and languages. I believe in social justice, political sovereignity and economical independence.
I also work and volunteer in YFU, an international exchange organization, which I believe is also a way to make the world a better place; through cultural understanding and respect.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in living and enjoying the present. Thinking about the future, but never sacrificing the present. And always remembering and learning from the past!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I think learning is the most important things man can do in life, and travelling is one of the best ways to learn. And if you can't travel, hosting is a great and probably also one of the best approaches to learn from others!

I enjoy surfing/hosting with people who come like a friend, who know how to be helpful and nice, open-minded and talkative people! Also clean and tidy.

Interests

Politics, geography, music, city planning, cooking, human rights, journalism, minorities, anti-colonialism, Armenian issues, Tibetan and Uyghur freedom, Finnish language, Japanese culture, Polynesia, languages in general, olives, umeboshi.

In Movies:
Hayao Miyazaki, Wong Kar Wai, and Daniel Burman are my favourite directors.

In Books, Naomi Klein's No Logo and Galeano's Las Venas Abiertas de América Latina are pillars of my mind.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I met Cristina Fernández de Kirchner (Argentina president, whom I love) and that day was fucking amazing :).
I guess another amazing thing was hitchhiking from Italy to Armenia and everything that happened during that trip.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you the languages I speak, English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Serbocroatian or Chinese :o). I'm also a very good cook, have a wonderful taste in music, can teach you everything about Argentine politics, and some other stuff B/.
