About Me


Travel the world looking for unique moments to share with every culture


I'm a french student living in Lyon with 2 very nice roommates.
I love to travel and meet new people.
I have spent a lot of time in England and I lived in Shanghai for 6 months.
I'm an outgoing person and I like to party too!
I enjoy every moment I spend with people and I am more than happy to help in any way I can when I meet new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As the President of the International Union in my school (called International-Link, at EMLyon Business School) I often recommend couchsurfing to new students coming in France. I think it is the best way to make the most of a trip in a new country.


I have never really couchsurfed before but I stayed at my British friend's place in Sheffield (UK), one year after we first met in Salamanca (Spain). I really enjoyed the time I spent there because I felt I could understand the way students are living there. I wasn't considered as a foreigner so it really made me feel at ease right from the beginning.


Talking in a different language than mine (French) except if I have to help someone else who is learning it!
Playing the guitar (badly unfortunately)
Writing poetry or short stories
