About Me


I would describe myself as an idealistic, open minded and adventurous person who loves to laugh as well as to have a deep conversation.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


After some wonderful Couchsurfing experiences in Brazil I hope to host people myself now!


I did a Bsc in International Development Studies at Wageningen University (the Netherlands) and a minor at the University of Sao Paulo. Currently I study International Relations and Diplomacy (MSC)at Leiden University.
I love to read, play piano, travel, meet new people and am interested in other cultures.
