About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Try to find and fulfill my mission on earth and help others do the same!

ABOUT ME

I think I can honestly say that I'm a laid-back person who enjoys life, travelling, meeting new people, good conversations and learning new things.

I love change, I hate status quo or that feeling you get when you're caught up in routine. So I do everything to avoid it! That often means having way too many things to do and not having any time for myself, but I don't see myself living otherwise.

I am an artist, a singer, a dancer, a linguist, a globe-trotter.

I am African, Canadian, Cameroonian, Senegalese, Latina, Mexican, Spanish, Brazilian...

I am honest and straight-forward, sometimes a little too much!

If I could, I would visit all countries in Latin America.

I love ice cream, good movies, sleeping, laughing, dancing, and that exciting feeling of being in a new place and not knowing where I'm going next.

I love touching people with my voice, my songs, my lyrics.

PHILOSOPHY

CARPE DIEM

I believe that my word is one the most valuable things that I can give to someone, so when I do give it, I try my very best to honour it.

Patience and efforts always end up paying off.

Anyone who wants to meet me must know that I truly, deeply believe in God, I am a Catholic.

I also believe in respect and dialogue and consider myself an open-minded person.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Unfortunately, right now I can't host, but I love going to meetings when I can, and have on-on-ones with other CSers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've surfed couches in:

-Toledo, Spain -Puebla, Mexico -Zacatecas, Mexico

I've hosted once while living in Puebla, Mexico.

Interests

Music(Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Pop, R&B, Soul, Gospel, Classical), Dance, Cinema, Travelling, Spanish Language and Cultures, Portuguese, Teaching

Music, Movies & Books

I love movies, I cry and laugh very easily while watching them. Adam Sandler is my favorite actor. Denis Villeneuve's "Incendies" has left me speechless.

I also love to read, I'm a very slow reader because I easily get distracted from finishing a book. Therefore I can take up to one year to finish one!

Right now I'm reading Julia Navarro's "La Sangre de los Inocentes", which I started one year ago!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

3.5 million of youth gathered on Copacabana beach on July 27, 2013. And yet you could hear the waves through the silence for a few minutes.

Teach, Learn, Share

I don`t think I'm in a position to teach anyone anything about life. All I can do is testify and open my years wide while listening and learning from others.

Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Cameroon, Chile, France, Portugal, Romania, Switzerland, Uruguay, Virgin Islands, U.S.

Countries I've Lived In

Canada, Mexico, Senegal, Spain
