About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I am a University student currently living in Montreal and I just came back from an exchange program that I was doing in Lyon (France). I am soon finishing my studies and will start working as a Speech/Language Pathologist in september 2013 ! I love and need to be constantly surrounded by friends, family, new people I meet, etc !

PHILOSOPHY

"Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have discovered couchsurfing through some friends while I was in an exchange program in Lyon, in 2011, with my friend Alexandra and am now looking forward to continuing alone or with my boyfriend as well !

For now, I am looking forward to meeting people who are visiting Montreal, go out for drinks or for a visit of the town, etc ! I can't wait to start hosting people in Montreal as well !

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I recently discovered couchsurfing when I arrived in France in 2011. The friends I was travelling with and I really enjoyed meeting people that are willing to help out, show you around a town they are familiar with and even just hang out with you during your stay. I can't wait to be the one hosting people in my town, it will be amazing :)
