About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live the people's summit in Rio in june

ABOUT ME

I like to meet people from very different culture and education because it is always a way to understand better the world we live in and try to change it to the better. One thing I really enjoy: getting to know a new place. Hope to discover a lot from people during my 5 months in montreal.I think that a way to describe myself is to say i am happy to live and try to make people around me happy too! But sometimes wandering why I have the chance to live this life when so many others will never get the chance to leave their village or get a proper education makes me want to do more than profit from life.

PHILOSOPHY

en francais c'est mieux...
"qui voyage ajoute a sa vie"
"Tout ce que vous faites pour moi sans moi, vous le faites contre moi" (ghandi)
"If you want breakfast in bed, sleep in the kicthen"
"Smile, without a reason why, smile, love as if you were a child"
"Tout homme est utile à l'humanité en cela seul qu'il existe". Jean-Jacques Rousseau
"L'homme sera d'abord ce qu'il aura projeté d'être." Jean-Paul Sartre

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When i travel I'am used to do couchsurfing because i think meeting people it is the only way to discover a place. What is a town without its inhabitants? I have been doing a research on couchsurfing in my sociology course and its way to function suprises me more everyday.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In huesca in spain with a friend, in stockolm with my family (couchsurfing works also with families!),in Lugano (switzerland), ecuador, peru, bolivia, Quebec...and many more to come. I've hosted in lausanne and in strasbourg, only good experiences!

Interests

My passion is dancing!But I also enjoy reading books that enhance debates, having a good meal that I prepared with friends, watching good movies (the ones that make you stare without talking for 10 minutes after the end), being in the nature facing the elements (in particular the mountains and lakes), good discussions about politics, society, philosophy...,songs around a fire.
I like nutella, sleeping in a refuge after climbing a mountain, hot chocolate after ski time, being with my family, watching sunsets, bycicling very fast,....
I am also interested in exploring science communications by different ways as thatre. My studies tought me that understanding science and technology is really important to be a good citizen, and I want to help people with that, in particular those who never got the chance to study science.

Music, Movies & Books

movies: "la vie est un miracle", "va, vis et deviens", "little miss sunshine", "eternel sunshine of a spotless mind", "shine", "Into the wild" "que tan lejos" "after the wedding" and many others
music: i like a lot french music (la rue ketanou, debout sur le zinc, les tit's nassel, les cowboys fringuants) reggae(ticken Jah, patrice), rodrigo y gabriela, muse, bonobo, the cat empire..and many others
