About Me


To be part of a better world.


First of all, I am a social activist, intersectional feminist, left-wing politically, always thinking and working hard to make myself a better person and this world a better and fairer place.

I teach programming in a public university in Curvelo, Minas Gerais State. I love my job, and that is mainly because it puts me in a great position to connect to many people and influence them in a good manner. I've also been an artist in free times (lately, very rare ones) in different expressions: mainly dancing, but also acting, painting, violin playing, etc. Nowadays I am also investing in marcial arts, taking up karate.

Open-minded, I will try anything once and form my own opinion about it. Different is good, non-conventional is great, changes are welcome, thinking and feeling intensively are essential.

In a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator I am an INFJ.


In order to live life intensively, nothing else is required but me. But I am fully required.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Telling people about the concept of CS, about the kind of people that normally take part in, trying, in a soft manner, to break their resistance in trusting people that they don't fully know.


I started in CS as a guest and, as a guest, I've learned to be a good host. As a host, I've learned to be a much better guest.


Social justice, feminism, human rights, sociology, politics, psichology, philosophy, science and all kind of challenging conversations.

Arts, cultures and people, books, movies, travelling, challenges, pretty much everything that is wholesome and fun.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming with river dolphins in Amazon, those sweet, kind, wonderful creatures that gave me the honour to be among them for some hours.

Teach, Learn, Share

Sharing moments, thoughts, feelings is what I most want from a person.

A more equal society is what I mostly want from the world.
