About Me

CURRENT MISSION

spreading a smile across the world.. one country at a time :)

ABOUT ME

I am a Spanish teacher in a challenging secondary school in North-West London. My job is different everyday and I work with some incredible children. This year I have completed my teacher training on the job, and though it has been one of the toughest of my life, I have come through more resilient and grateful for what I have.

I have been lucky enough to have a travel mad family. I live for the long summers I have been blessed with as a student, and now as a teacher, always hoping to go to a different place every year.

I am an open minded person and love meeting new people especially those who can teach me something. I am a self-confessed chatterbox and I wish everyone said hello as we passed in the street, and all joined couchsurfing!

PHILOSOPHY

Every little good action you do makes the world that little bit better. I live for smiles, seeing the world through others eyes and learning a new thing every day.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I attended meetings in Mexico City where I lived for a year. I would love to have my first surfing experience this summer when I go back to Mexico.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I travelled from Igazu falls on the Argentinean side to the Brazilian, with a great CS Brazilian friend. We wandered around the Brazilian supermarket and I tried different Brazilian food types he loves.

I had my first surfing experience last summer and loved it!

Interests

History and culture, I studied History at Uni; I'm not religious but I love looking around churches and cathedrals... they are stunning and fascinate me. Mexican food, salsa dancing :) I genuinely love meeting new people, everyone has something they are able to share. I love Horse Riding, Swimming, Rowing, and Volleyball. Camping- I have been involved with the Scouts for a large part of my life so have always loved being outdoors, telling stories around the campfire. Nights out with my amazing friends... I love going out and dancing :) laughing about nights out the next day! Cooking dinner for a group and being the host at a party.. but also enjoy being cooked for too!

Music, Movies & Books

Slumdog Millionaire - an amazing film that inspired me to go to India and see it for myself.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I volunteered at an orphanage in Bolivia and lived with a family there. It was a tough and challenging experience, but I loved every minute. The memories will stay with me forever. A 15,000 ft sky dive at Lake Taupo, New Zealand. Incredible.

Teach, Learn, Share

Spanish/English. I could do a language exchange. I have been lucky to have had many cultural experiences in my life and would love to share them with you.
