About Me


Learn and love


I think I'm very social person, who likes to live and experiences. I like to learn about other cultures and peoples and not only in books but from the persons themselves. I like to be a teacher because I learn from my students every day something new and we share the joy of learning.
visited 64 states (28.4%)


I am a very enthusiastic and energetic person. I love life and new experiences and acquaintances but also I take care of my old friends who are a very important part of what I mean when I say happiness. I'm passionate about music, dance and literature, I like to enjoy what the human being is capable of doing to make this world better.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been hosting friends for a while (almost every two weeks) then I decided to travel and to meet the people in place, now I am more interested in CS activism


First of all hosting nice people from abroad and showing them my city, my house, my friendship.
Then I was hosted in India in a nice and practical way and meet friends to travel together.
Now I meet the CS groups of my city and have new nice people around. Also I have contacted with the people of CS group in Tunisia and was a wonderful way to know the though and to enjoy the friendship of many interesting persons and a new and rich way to travel.
From Morocco I meet very active groups and some that are not active at all. I will work for no one can say that from my city.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To see how the people can communicate without any common language when they want to, and how the cannot communicate in the same language when they don't want to. To see how the people who has very few gives all in a moment and how people who has a lot try to get more and more without regarding the means.
