About Me

ABOUT ME

I was born in Paraguay and then moved to Portugal and Spain. Currently I'm a student-athlete in the University of Missouri Saint Louis. I study biochemistry and biotechnology while swimming in the NCAA. My ultimate goal is to become an Oceanographer and Marine Scientist so I can spend more time near the ocean, which is my longest love.
I'm a very outgoing person, always looking for new adventures. I love to travel and to meet new people and make new friends. I'm a caring, friendly person, always willing to help!

PHILOSOPHY

the mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like this site because it's a great way to meet people from all over the world and you can help others to get to know your city too.

Interests

I love the outdoors, animals and nature.
I really enjoy almost all kind of sports, but my favourite ones are skiing, biking, surfing, swimming, and basketball.
I like to read, listen to music and to hang out with friends and family.
But above all I LOVE traveling and meeting people from other countries and cultures.
