About Me


discover the world :)


I'm a 26 years old psychologue of greek origin, currently working in Paris. I like making new friends and learning about other cultures! I'm a city lover and I consider myself being a citizen of the world.
I love travelling, reading literature, watching films and having good time with friends (usually with a bottle of wine and board games). I'm also vegetarian and interested in defending animal rights.


A worthliving life is a life full of relationships...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to jump all borders between countries. I believe it's up to us to construct a better world where racism has no place. It's fun and really interesting at the same time to communicate with people from other countries and different backgrounds.


My experiences until now are all positive. I've met a lot of wonderful and interesting people, with whom I had a great time either when offering a couch or being hosted.


I love litterature and reading books, studying psychology, travelling and learning new things and foreign laguages! Other interests of mine are, among others, music, of course, history, dancing. I am also interested in politics.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've visited Auschwitz in Poland. This experience had a strong impact on me, I cannot forget the place and the feelings I had at that time. I think everyone should visit it, in order to make sure that such events would not happen again.

I can teach you some greek and cooking vegeterian meals! I would like to learn other languages and traditional dances as well.
