About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover every corner of the French country

ABOUT ME

I was originally born in the Philippines and moved to Vienna, AUT when I was a child. I basically grew up in Austria and feel like a true Viennese, despite my Asian roots.
I have an inexplicable fascination with the French people, language and culture. That's why I'm pursuing a career as a teacher in English and French, hoping that one day I can move to France and teach here. I did my Erasmus in Nice from September 2012 to January 2013. This experience has reinforced my interest for the French country even more! It has also made me realise that I'd like to continue moving. I want to live in as many different places as possible cos I think the world has so much to offer, and I don't want to miss out on that.

I'm a very social person. I like meeting new people because I think there's always something that u can learn from them :) I'm very easy to be with, always complaisant and eager to discover new things. I like to laugh a lot and just enjoy life.

PHILOSOPHY

Aim high.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As for now, I'm just a couchsurfer excited to travel to any place where I can meet cool people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I couchsurfed once so far in Montpellier and I've recently started participating at Couchsurfing events, such as conversation tables.

Interests

I want to discover new things and make new adventures. So naturally, I love going out. I like eating out at restaurants and trying things I've ever eaten before. The more exotic the better!
Also, I'm big fan of music. I play the guitar and piano. I like spontaneous jam-sessions, they are the best!

Music, Movies & Books

Geisha, Slumdog Millionaire, Into the Wild, Black Swan, Kanye West, Coldplay, Adele, Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Bach, Chopin etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

2012 is a year of adventures for me. I flew back to my home country, the Philippines, after almost 16 years. I haven't gone back since I moved to Vienna as a little child. It was wonderful seeing my whole family again and finding out more about my origin. I finally had the occasion to learn my own mother tongue too!
Then, in August 2012 I came to France to do my Erasmus. It is the best decision I could have made for my life. It was the first time for me to go to a foreign country alone. I've learnt a lot of things about myself, the meaning of independence, responsibility etc. My stay here has taught me a lot, and I am continuing to learn.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm open for teaching languages like German and English, as I speak both at mother-tongue level.
Also, I play the guitar and the piano, and could teach u some chords/songs.

I'm happy to teach/help/learn/share anything u like!
