“Live simply so that others may simply live.” -Gandhi

I'm an easy going person who loves to smile and have fun. I'm an adventurist who loves learning and trying new things. I'm dedicated to my family and living a simple life of love and appreciation.

I spent about 2 years living in various countries in South America. There is something about the diverse South American cultures that I can't get enough of. I have met amazing people in my travels and would love to share stories and experiences with others. I am currently in grad school pursing my masters in International Education. I love to travel and I would love to work with Youth Development Programs to get children excited about traveling and exploring the world around them.

Culture is meant to be soaked up like a sponge and it's what keeps the world going.

Soy una chica que le gusta reír muchooooo y es las cosas simples en la vida que me dan una sonrisa. Soy una persona muy sociable y siempre quiero conocer mas gente. Para mi, la mejor manera de vivir es ser espontánea y no gastar tiempo y energía con las preocupaciones. Tenemos una sola vida y hay que vivirla. He cambiado mucho mis pensamientos durante mi experiencia en Latinoamérica no quiero dejar de cambiar.


"Live the life you love, love the life you live"

Be wiling to try anything at least once.

The past is unchangeable, The future is but a result of your actions today. So learn from the past to do better in the present so that you can succeed in the future.

Its only right to Quote "Into the Wild"
So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. -- Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild Christopher McCandless

Vive la vida que amas...Ama la vida que vives

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to meet new people and share stories and experiences. Wherever I am in the world I like to go to the events and meetings and have a good time. I also try to respond and post helpful messages for everyone. When I get my own place one day I cannot wait to host people!

We are all interconnected and united as people and CS helps build relationships and connections. I hope to be an outlet for connections and positive vibes in the future.

Me gusta ir a los meetings y participar en los eventos. Tambien trato de ayudar los otro viajeros con mensajes y posts. Ahorita no puedo host gente porque viajo mucho y vivo con mis padres pero en el futuro seguro seras bienvenida.


I have meet amazing people from all over the world. I've have done some surfing here and there but I mostly I live in the countries I travel to, so I like to meet locals and explore the city

Yo creo que la unica forma para aprender y entender culturas diferentes es viajar. He conocido mucha gente viajando y mi encanta hacer amistades nuevas.


I am easily pleased and entertained and not at all picky. There are many things that make me happy. I love learning new things like languages (especially slang), cooking, dancing. I prefer to be outdoor than indoors. My hobbies are hiking, running, swimming, capoeira, working out, eating, laughing and rock climbing.

I would consider myself very easy going and down for anything. I think its important to have an open mind and I like people who voice their opinions.

Yo soy una persona simple. Me encanta la comida; me fascinan los deportes como treking, natacion, yo prefiero estar afuera en el sol o en un parque; la cultura e idiomas me vuelva loca especialmente las jergas; me interesa mucha la vida simple; me encanta­ conocer el mundo y las bellezas; quiero rodearme con gente que tiene buena onda.
