Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I grew up in Bogota, Colombia and lived there until I was 17. After that, I went to college in Spain and graduated of Business Administration from the University of Salamanca. On my last year of university I went on exchange to the Netherlands and participated in several entrepreneurial projects around the country. When I finished there and after working for a Bank in Spain during the summit of the financial crisis, my passion for Buddhism led me for a spiritual search. I then took off to Nepal where I volunteered as an English Teach at a Buddhist monastery in the hills of Kathmandu. As an avid and curious traveller, I took part in a Charity Challenge trek to the Anapurna Base Camp in support of an orphanage.

My life goal of becoming a mass recruiter of world social entrepreneurs led me to the world of micro finance and that is how I went for work in Kenya. Now a I live in Bogota again and I work for an NGO supporting social entrepreneurs.

Interests

Football (Not American Football), travelling, trekking, movies, music, Yoga, Buddhism, etc....
