About Me


Continuing traveling and making friends - Perfecting my foreign languages (Portuguese, French and Italian) .


I am an Argentine anthropologist and child rights activist. I currently live in Silicon Valley, in the Bay Area of San Francisco in California.

I lived in my beloved Buenos Aires all my life, and in 2015 I moved to Budapest to do a Master's degree at Central European University. I met my boyfriend (now husband) almost as soon as I arrived, so I stayed in Hungary until 2022!

I know it's hard to describe a person through a few lines, but if you meet me you'll see that I'm a very social, friendly and outgoing person. I love being with my friends, chatting and sharing moments with them more that anything. I also like getting to know new cultures and lifestyles and trying new activities.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've always had possitive CS experiences, and I've meet awsome people in different countries thanks to it! :)


Learning about history and different world cultures and lifestyles. I love travelling a lot because it's the best way to learn and grow up while meeting new friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Volunteering at a slum I've learnt directly about poor people's reality, which has to be changed!!! Besides that, I travelled around Argentina and Brazil and I saw awsome landscapes! and met people that has a very different lifestyle from mine.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like teaching and I love learning new stuff and sharing. My knowledge is centered in culture and society.
