I was born in Guatemala and lived there until I was twelve. Then I came to France where I live now.
I spent a year in England and in Guatemala before coming back to Paris.
I'm a philantropist, I really love people and social exchange. I love learning from other people and cultures different from mine. But i enjoy sharing mine. I train every day to withdraw positive stuff from everyday life.Mistakes are a way of learning.
Live and invent your life the best way you can. Luck enters you life when you let it in. I believe in life, and people and love thinking that there's a supreme force above. But I never try to convince anyone to think the same way!!!
Laughter is the best gun in the world, the more you laugh at yourself, the better.
You learn how strong you can be when you confront yourself to other cultures...And it is also the best way to know yours!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I haven't experienced couchsurfing yet but I'm looking forward to doing it as well as to receive people.
I love discovering different cultures, When i travel I love feeling like a local and not like a tourist!!
