Currently working as a UN intern in Quito, Ecuador
living and enjoying life. Meeting new people, places, and cultures.
Spontaneous, always down to meet new people, adventurous, etc... Its hard to quantify someone in a few words but I'm always happy to experience new things, places, and cultures. I love my family and close friends and will do anything for them.
Do it, be spontaneous. Follow your dreams, live and enjoy life, otherwise you'll wake up and half of your life will have passed you by.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
hosting and surfing
Been an active member of the couchsurfer community for around 7 years now.
I got my Masters in Applied Physics in Jan 2013 and Masters in International Devlopment in 2016. I am very active, I play soccer, tennis, run, love the outdoors, try to enjoy my surroundings as much as I can. I am also very involved in activism, being involved with groups that try to make this world a better place. I love to travel, and try new things. Hit me up if you want to grab a coffee or beer or get in some adventures around the city!
