About Me


Love people and change things!


I am a student of International Relations, currently live with six friends in the city of Franca, but was born and raised in Sao Paulo. One year ago I returned from a fascinating student exchange that lasted six months, in which I lived in the small and charming city of Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain. I am a woman, feminist and passionate about art and music. I love meeting people, love to travel, I like to eat well and drink a good wine!


Many believe that wealth is in the material things, but there is nothing more precious in the world than ourselves, the people! So, I do not usually drop people as we usually do with things ...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I believe that CouchSurfing works as a strong friendship: we know that whenever we need we can count on it, once we know care for and cultivate this relationship.


The CouchSurfing is a wonderful experience that made me meet amazing people and recognize a little of myself in each one. I built strong friendships and spent some very pleasant time, I can only be thankful for the warmth and hospitality of everyone!


Interested in sharing my experiences with people who think differently, learn from them every day for do not limit myself to live in my little world! There is too much to see out there and I would like to explore as much as possible!
