About Me

CURRENT MISSION

€œDream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.€ J. D. I've been always dreaming to travel and go around the world meeting people and learning about new cultures. My current mission is learning not only about me but about others.
Mi misión es aprender no solo de mi misma, sino de los demás. Me encanta viajar y conocer gente de distintas culturas, aprender de ellas y de mi cuando la vida por cosas del azar nos ha unido en el mismo camino.

ABOUT ME
Is hard to define yourself, so I will just said that the references here pretty much can give you an idea of how I might be, nevertheless, is ok if you want to get your own impression :) I studied International Relations and Latin America Studies and now I'm back in Ecuador after doing my master on Development and Gender in Australia. At the moment, I'm settling myself temporary in Ecuador again.
PHILOSOPHY
I live my life as it was the last day of my life. I'm very optimistic and positive. I consider that life is a journey and that we must enjoy this wonderful ride while we are alive! Never regret what we have done!
Never judge a book by its cover

En pocas palabras mi filosofía de vida es vivir al máximo, estar agradecida por lo que tengo, vivir sin ataduras del pasado y simplemente hacer las cosas que me hacen feliz, obviamente sin hacer daño ni herir al resto.
I try to be the best version of myself .

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was talking with one of my friends about traveling and she mentioned this place, so, here I am, excited to start this journey! It is great to meet people that feel the same way about it!

Una amiga me contó acerca de CS y aquí estoy, dispuesta a darle una oportunidad. Me encanta conocer a personas que comparten este espíritu de conocer a otros.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
I started this experience without knowing exactly how it worked. Nevertheless, with the time I can say that so far exceeded my expectations. I've meet so many wonderful people along the way that all I can say is that so far so good. I met like minded people who always taught me something. I found good friends along the way, therefore, my overall experience has being amazing.

Al principio, no sabía como funcionaba, pero a pesar de las dudas decidí darle una oportunidad y la verdad no me arrepiento. He conocido personas maravillosas gracias a CS, algunas siguen siendo mis amig@s a pesar de estamos en lugares distintos. Han existido algunos experiencias un poco bizarras también, pero, inclusive de ellas he aprendido.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Doing an internship in Cambodia during my summer break. I had the chance to meet local people, work with communities and learn about their daily life. This was a remarkable experience that contributed to my personal and professional learning.

Una de las cosas que más ha enriquecido mi vida fue mi pasantia en Cambodia, durante mis estudios de postgrados. Esta experiencia fue muy linda porque descubrí no sólo uno de los países más hermosos en cuanto a paisajes, sino gracias a la calidez y bondad de su gente. Viví con una familia local y aprendí mucho más de esta manera que si hubiera estado solo de viaje en un hostal. Apreció mucho el haber podido tener esta experiencia tan linda.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well I think that I can teach any type of dance hahaha, I'm very into music and dance, this is a part of me that's very easy to see! I can share a little bit of my culture, my experience abroad as exchange student,music of course and some tips about ecuadorian gastronomy if you would like to try to do some of your own!

Puedo enseñar un poquito de todo, desde baile hasta cocina. Puedo compartir mi perspectiva de la vida, y si a la persona le interesa, esto puede llevarnos a hablar desde religión hasta política, eso si, respetando siempre los puntos de vista del otro. Igualmente puedo compartir mis anécdotas de viaje y de estudiante de intercambio tanto en Estados Unidos como en Australia.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can give you a little introduction to Ecuador, you just choose the topic and I might be able to come up with something. I can teach you how to cook, how to dance or even teach you some Spanish if you are interested in the language.

Con los host puedo compartir un poquito de mi cultura, de mi país y de mi ser, ya sea por medio de música, de comida y de una buena charla.
