About Me


Doing my clerkships


Hi there! My name is Gwen. I'm a medical student and I'm living in Amsterdam. At the moment I am in my 5th year, being busy with my clerkships. It is nice, I'm enjoying it, but it is rather time consuming! Last year I went to Brazil for 6 months to do a research internship there. I enjoyed my stay in Rio and I loved traveling through Brazil. I will definitely go back to Rio one day. I am trying to learn the Portuguese language, but it is difficult, and I am a bit stuck at beginner level :)


Never participate at karaoke (when you're a bad singer like me).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been to Couch Surf meetings in Amsterdam. When I was in Rio I joined some meetings and events, which I enjoyed a lot. It gave me the opportunity to meet people and I made some dear friends, thanks to it.


Traveling, playing volleybal, IFMSA (international federation of medical students association), cooking a nice meal, drinking a cup of tea during the day and enjoying a beer at night :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Harry Potter, lonely planet, medical books, basically everything with an interesting story..
And pretty much the same for movies. But what I don't like so much are (romantic) comedies. They are supposed to make you smile, but strangely enough they never do.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Medical stuff and traveling!
NYE and carnaval in Rio.
