I currently give drama lessons to kids but would like to give sessions to adults aswell. I didn't go to university so it's hard to make a living as an actress, especially when people don't take you seriously as an artist. As a half french and half japanese, being able to speak English, French, Japanese, I try to get some jobs as a coordinator or translator but even that isn't always easy. I grew up in many different countries because of my parent's job... very enriching I must say, but challenging at the same time.
I love travelling of course, adventurous, open minded, and always happy to meet new people all around the world, learn about different cultures, and always bugging my friends to teach me some words / sentences in their languages. I find it so cool when one can master so many languages at the same time. It's so hard because you don't always get a chance to practice.
Other than that, I also have a huge passion for animals. Speaking of which, I had the chance to experience being around elephants and taking care of them for one whole month, in Thailand, in summer 2015, by volunteering in a sanctuary for elephants. It's really awful to see how abused these creatures are, despite their intelligence and their important contribution to our eco system. I hate it when people are disrespectful to our planet.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I don't have a couch to offer as i live in a tiny appartment, but always happy to get coffee and show around if needed!
I surfed at people's houses more than i hosted them(not that i wouldn't enjoy doing it more if i had more space to do it...), and I go to meetings as much as i can as i travel alone a lot. It's fun and my greatest expériences as a traveller happened with couchsurfing.
I love to go to the movies, listen to music, dance, play the piano, saxophone, or other instruments, and I'm really keen on diving, I love the sea!!!!!
Music, Movies, and Books
Music and the movie, both: THE DOORS!!! I really love the sixties and the seventies. Janis Joplin, the woman I wanted to be! The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, they are just amazing in concert! They don't look like they are 70 years old at all! I also like Jazz, latin music, blues, country, electro....all sorts I guess, except for hard metal, whatever you call it, music that doesn't sound like music...Books hmmm it's a shame because I never really read books...God please forgive me! I like philosophy and psychology, sometimes i try to analyse my dreams, i find it interesting.
Movies: American Beauty, La Pianiste, Cabaret, Les Invasions Barbares, The Fallen Angels, A Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest ( Jack Nicholson very sexy and great actor!!!) etc...can keep on for ever...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was hitchhiking with a friend from Amsterdam to Vienna, quite a long trip that we didn't manage to finish in a day. we got trapped at one point in Germany with a Turkish truck conductor who didn't speak a word of English nor German... We had to sleep in his truck for a night before we managed to change cars the next morning on a parking lot. Two grils stuck with a strange man, now we laugh about it but it was pretty scary!
