About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My goal is to travel the more I can around the world and get to know many people and cultures.

ABOUT ME

I'm a fun, easygoing and talkative girl. I love to travel and meet people from around the world, and some times to get the chance of improve my level of foreign languages. Nothing is better than get to know other cultures. That is exactly what I want to do with my life. I'm open-minded and tolerant, so you can trust me as a friend. I think my friends usually have good time in my company. I love to cook, dance, read and watch movies, of course!

PHILOSOPHY

Life's too short, make the most of it!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Interests

What I like the most is definitely traveling. I really enjoy spending time surrounded by natural landscapes but I love cities and their busy life as well. I love to know other cultures and people, as it makes me realize how amazingly big the world is and how many wonderful things I have to discover. I spend my time studying cinema and television in the National University of Colombia, and this is my last year. I love animals, and live with a cat in my house. I spend the rest of my time hanging out with my friends and reading.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of my favourite moments is the time I spend in the Amazon in company of a good friend of mine and her parents, anthropoligists and linguists of the Amazonic cultures. They have a shack in the middle of the jungle and are professors in the Leticia's headquarters of the university, so I had the opportunity of learn a lot of things!

Other amazing moments are, in the first place, a travel that I did with my father to Mexico, staying in Puebla with a local family and a trip I did to La Guajira, here, in Colombia, a magical place with amazing landscapes.
