About Me

CURRENT MISSION

observe, listen, taste, smell, touch.... and learn

ABOUT ME

Traveling is a must. I went to an international school for two years, hence I have friends all over world.. and I love to go visit them! Multiculturalism, the environment and nature, peace, mental peace, party and fun, family, arts are just some of those things I am interested in and I work for.

PHILOSOPHY

I am trying to live many experiences to understand better this world. We must feel and live our emotions deeply, never push them away, because they are beautiful. Surround myself with better people, so I can become a better person. Always have a book and music handy. And meet as many people as you can, people will always have something to teach you!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to meet more travelers, whether it is by me traveling or by receiving people. I have received people in the past and also I have met some of the greatest friends over CS back in NC, USA.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

left home as soon as i turned 17 to go meet the world. UWCCR, the international school I went to, gave a drastic change to my lifestyle and life in general.
