About Me


Get out of the box...or try to.


There is a word that best describes everything that I expect from people and I hope people expect from me... Kindness.
There are things that do not change if you change your house, neighborhood, city, country, continent or anything else.
I'm looking for these best things that don't change when you change your place. By the way, I'm actually looking for everything what is good that depends or not on the geography.

I truly believe that my pictures are part of who I am: www.flickr.com/elisamrb


Crossing the line of comfort.
It is easy go to the same place where you know how to behave and nothing gets out of the control. It is easy to think that the unique world in this universe is where you live in. There are a billion people to know, a billion places to visit, why to do the same things for all the time of our life? Why not explore a few of all the possibilities and leverage to generate a positive impact for the people to multiply caring, respect and happiness.

no music? no life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

-Ski. I never had seen snow before going to Montreal. In the first month, I met a girl from here and she went with me and other CSer for a Mountain to Ski. I never felt so missing myself control and so scared but facing it and falling a lot as well! :D
