About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live!

ABOUT ME

I am a passionate traveller, a world citizen. I am a fun, spontaneous , creative person. I was a Peace Corps volunteer living in Mozambique for 3 years. I am completing my Master's in International Affairs and Development at American University, Washington, DC. Now, I am in Suzhou, China studying Chinese on a scholarship program at Soochow University. The program is very intense but I have my weekends free so I try to travel as much as I can.

PHILOSOPHY

Be strong and believe in yourself!

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I join meetups spots and meet up with CS to hang out and chill. I want to host but i live in a dorm in DC through my university and I cannot host for the moment. I am hoping to move to a different place in September so I have more flexibility.

I love traveling, spiritual books, any kinds of music, dancing, reading, karate, hula hooping, swimming, bikram yoga, running, clubbing, yoga in general, Chinese calligraphy, Tai Chi.
