About Me

I am born & raised from Los Angeles, California. Even though born in the states, I consider myself to be 100% Colombian.
I am soon to graduate from college and I am looking forward to moving to another country as soon as I complete my college education.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I don't think there's anything better than couch surfing. I think it's a great way to meet people around the world. I've always thought hotels are a bit boring. Staying in someone's home allows you explore a person's culture and I think this is an amazing opportunity. My experience couch surfing so far has been memorable & the people I have met have been so kind to me in incredible ways. I will definitely keep couch surfing and when I finally settle down in a home, I will be excited to open up my home to wanderers.


I absolutely love to travel and I would take any chance to to jump on a plane and have them drop me off anywhere in the world.
I love to go bike riding and go swimming. The beach is definitely my favorite, but what can you expect? I'm from California.
I haven't played the piano in two years, but I love to sit on the piano and play for fun. I also play the ukulele and was learning how to play the guitar before I decided to travel so much.

Music, Movies, and Books

I LOVE Latin music. This includes salsa, bachata, merengue, reggaeton and vallenato. I love to dance and my favorite artists include Carlos Vives, Prince Royce, Marc Anthony and Romeo Santos.
But of course I listen to all kinds of music.

I LOVE MOVIES. I can watch anything and I don't really have any preferences. My favorite movie of all time is Slumdog Millionaire.

I read all the time on my Kindle. But so far my favorite book is Seven Daughters & Seven Sons.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Going to Patagonia, and climbing all the way to see the Torres del Paine, which is a total of a 10 hour hike. I thought that was pretty amazing.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My spontaneous personality. I consider myself to be really down-hearted and open minded. I love to learn new things, especially things about different cultures.
