ABOUT ME

IMPORTANT: please do not contact me in any matters, which are not related to the ideas of couchsurfing. Couchsurfing is NOT a dating site! Please respect this!

I am currently doing the Young Professional Programme of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. In this context, I am working at a sexual and reproductive health programme in Malawi. I am fully enjoying the professional experience but also the various encounters with Malawi and its people. Soon I will move to Geneva in the framwork of a secondment. I am excited to meet new people, to get to know a new work environment and to explore Geneva!

PHILOSOPHY

"Tomo mis suenos por realidades porque creo en la realidad de mis suenos"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I’d like to give other couchsurfers the opportunity to learn to know a bit about my country and our customs. The best way for me is to open my doors so that people can get their own idea about what this means.

Interests

Hiking, reading, exploring nature, spending time with my boyfriend, family and friends, cooking, dancing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A trip to Serbia where we got lost at night while searching for our csurfer's flat. We got rescued by a Roma family, which was so incredible welcoming and warmhearted! We got invited by them to stay the night at their place. Although we didn't do this because we had a compromise with our csurfer we went for breakfast the next day. They put food on the table without end. And even without understanding eachother (they didn't speak English), we managed to communicate somehow. This was really lovely!
