About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To go beyond boundaries!

ABOUT ME

I'm an enthusiastic woman! Passionate about what I do. I'm not afraid to follow my dreams and I fight for what I want.
I usually tend to say what I think. I do not have a filter!! I'm trying to improve on that skill and be more assertive.
I love cooking and I am always trying new, eclectic flavors.
I believe that traveling has made my life happier and that sharing life experiences with people from different cultures has helped me grow emotionally and intellectually.

PHILOSOPHY

If you want something out of life, you need to fight for it and go get it. Chances are that after a lot of tries you will end up having what you asked for.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I got into CS because a friend told me about it. Currently I can't host because I live with a host family in Colorado.

Once I get a place on my own I would be more than happy to host travelers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far my couchsurfing experience has been great!!! I've been hosted and hung out with great people.

Interests

Reading, hiking, swimming, yoga, cooking, teaching, chess, soccer, classical music, music!!!, beer and wings!, traveling, meeting new people, languages, gourmet food, sleeping, and those little places and moments that might be insignificant for someone but to me are just special.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Amazing that I quit my four jobs, gave away all my stuff, left family and friends and moved to Denver in an exchange program.... That was a 360° life change.

Amazing that my suitcase was stolen in California and I still had a blast even though I didn't have a toothbrush or extra underware, oh! and 10 bucks in my pocket... Lesson learned: Do not leave your wallet in your suitcase in the trunk of your car!

Amazing that I have been able to change my life this much and finish at the same time my master's.!!!

Amazing that I was blessed to see a sunset in Hawaii.
