Be the change you want to see in the world. - Ghandi
I would like to say I'm an easy going person who likes to be active. I was born in Brasil and have been living in NY for more then half my life. Like most Brasilians, I LOVE soccer! I have been to two Women's World Cup. The one in Germany 2011, and the most recent one in Canada 2015. I was able to go to catch a few games; including both finals. Words cannot describe that sensation.
I love the beach and summer time. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about new cultures. I work in a school as a school psychologist and I get to meet people from all over the world, so, during the summer I like to discover new cultures and new places.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
My friend introduced me to this amazing community. She invited me to go to Atlantic City. It was a CS event, every single person I met was nice and open minded people. So, ever since then I joined CS and have gone to a few CS events and have surfed a few times.
I have gone to a few CS events and have surfed a few times. My first time surfing was in Guatemala and my host was super nice and even picked me up at the airport :)
