About Me

First: if you have a different intention with me, other than being a CS friend, do not even try to send me messages. I AM NOT HERE TO DATE and I do not want to be mean, so please do not embarrass yourself.

Ahora si me presento: I am Mexican Attorney working on Immigration and Human Rights. I moved to LA in 2016 and I am completely in love with this city, I can even call it home.
I am very proud of my culture; love being MEXICANA. Did my DNA test and guess what? I loved my results: I am 80% Mesoamerican and Andean (where my strength comes from), 10.7% African, 5.7% Asian and only 2% European.
I love making friends from everywhere, meeting different and interesting people. I always remind myself that diversity is what makes the world a beautiful place.
I love food, 1.- Mexican (of course, can you beat that? do not think so) 2.- Asian (Indian, Thai, Korean, in that order) but I can eat EVERYTHING, believe me everything 🤗
My philosophy: well, I do not really have one, I build it everyday, because as everything in this world, I AM SUBJECT TO CHANGE and so my beliefs; but, I assume same than you, I am trying to catch happiness everywhere I go every day I live.
I love politics, coffee, reading books, watching sitcoms, red wine and beer, in fact I LOVE BEER, so if you're around a brewery is always a good place to meet, and so it's the beach. I LOVE MUSIC, I would not know how to survive if I could not listen it. EDM is my favorite, in case you were wondering.
Oh yes, part of my philosophy, BE GRATEFUL for what you have, feeling grateful always makes things better. ALWAYS.
And of course, I have my dark side, but that one is only for me... 🤗

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love diversity, and CS is a great and easy way to discover people, and to fall in love with the world over and over again... 🤗

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

First time I went to EDC, it blew my mind! 🙌🏽
