About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy life post-actuarial exams and try to find a way to move to Western Europe either as an actuary or through a graduate program.

ABOUT ME

I enjoy learning! I love to actively be a citizen of the world and share culture and traditions with people from the far ends of the world.

PHILOSOPHY

I live my life to contribute to my roots, those that I have rooted in New York City and the Dominican Republic. I value the virtues of hard work and adaptation to new people/society. My parents came to the US with nothing and were able to becoming active, accomplished members of society while raising my sister and I.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would like to provide a place to stay for people coming to New York City, my place of birth and current place of stay. I specifically live in the South Bronx, NYC, one of the so-called "most dangerous places in the USA". This isn't entirely true and I aim to prove this through contributing my hospitality to people that wish to come to NYC.
