About Me


Work hard and get ready for a new adventure!


I'm a friendly, mindful, and tolerant person who enjoys traveling and making new friends. I'm passionate about my work because teaching is challenging. I'm addicted to the thrill that comes from the first hand experience of seeing learning taking place. I also love doing sports and hanging out with inspiring people because I believe in a positive attitude to life.


To see the true nature of things sometimes one has to look beyond appearances.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far so great! I've met so many interesting and generous people who contributed to my better understanding of the world and myself. We've shared our experiences and learnt from each other. I'm still waiting for the opportunity to give back and host.


Reading British and American literature as well as history books. Watching films and travelling. Occasionally playing the guitar and baking cakes.
