About Me


I hope to be a diplomat one day. I'm studying to become it. It's a challenge. I work in a Human Rights Organization in the suburbs of Paris. I am a jurist. I'm a big fan of chocalates. When i travel i try to taste the typical local chocolates. Also a big fan of dictatures. I LOVE CHAGALL. I love politics and dictatorial systems just fascinate me. I love socialist or "semi-socialist" countries. I hope to be in North Corea one day. My favorite dishes are the Indian ones. I love people and discover little things about them is just fantastic. I love sexuality. I would like to understand the human sexuality. I'm a feminist. I like philosophy. I love reading feminist and post-colonial theories. I love muslim countries. I'll be in Iran one day. Addict to literature. I like to write texts and poetry even though i'm not so creative as i would like to be. Put into words what we feel fascinate me A LOT. Addict to movies too. The best film ever for me is Vanilla Sky (Abre los puis is not good enough, sorry Hollywood detractors). It is my therapy. I'm not shy. I like to comunicate. I like walking down the streets in all big cities. I love smilling. I like metros. I'm completely passionate to all languages. I think i'll never stop learning them. I loved french. I love russian. I'll learn arabic one day. I love french accent. And love arab women/men. I love Maghreb. I've been to Tunisia. Fantastic people. I love dancing. I like to drink wine, especially red ones. I like harmonica. I think it is sexy. I don't like weddings, i think it's boring. But i would love to get married with the one i love. I am a paradoxal and a romantic person. I love Frida Khalo, the person. I like candles and newspapers. I love travels. I love me when i travel. I must learn all the time and with everybody. I love to relax in calm parks. I like people who try to have an interesting and beautiful way of living. I like people who live a poetic life and can even sing in a karaoke.
