About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Breathe, Feel, Enjoy.. Quietly and deeply in phase with me and others.

ABOUT ME

Born on an Island then my 2 first years in Nigeria. Well after I grew up in Paris, but i am not considering myself as a typical Parisian. Maybe because of these origins?!? What I can say is that at first you'll find an easy-going behavior and someone you can rely on but what might need time to see is integrity. I'll give you with my heart and help you as much as i can.

Who am I ? I consider few things but i think that the more important to describe ourself is to find the good mirror. So... Few people that know me well had the kindness to answer to this question : Which are the three words to describe me ?

-My brother : the joy of living , well-organized, pushing. -My mother : smoothness, full of consideration, determinate. -My best friend : bon vivant or nonchalant (depends) , curious of everything. -An ex-girlfriend : smoothness, well-organized, composed. -Isabelle (CS) : Crazy, pushing, authentic

PHILOSOPHY

Very Important: + Taking care of everyone i like. And treat people like I would like to be treated. + Experiment news things, being curious of everything and open-minded on different practices.

A few quotes can say a lot, here there are mines :

Sound mind and body.

Stay hungry, stay foolish !

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well I'll try to be as active as my duties allowing it.

Hosting, surfing, answering questions, creating events to make meetings and enjoy new buddies.

I also try to give the CS spirit around me, to make my friends create an account, to open their mind to this crazy concept :).

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Began in March 2009 by a Meeting for a week-end in Amsterdam. Then all went fast : Hosting in Paris and surfing alone in Europe. Organizing events where I live etc. September 2011 The Ambassador flag will give me the motivation to do more through Couchsurfing !

Interests

Maybe because i am still looking for a model of life (which could be stupid that's true...), I am interested to things that makes life better in different ways : books about philosophical questions, social models, activities, food qualities, saving energy, being near to the nature...

I do (or try to) practice : Meditation Vipassana & Yoga Iyengar.

I am not to much into cultural stuff which not mean that i am not interested ! It is just not the right period i think. I do read books but more essays (psych, social...). I am also interested by technology and scientific news.

I do love sports and practice all kind of them : Roller (Inline Hockey), Cycling, Climbing, Kitesurfing, Hiking, Swimming, etc. Exception : Basket, Football, Handball.

Some people eat for living. Food is really important to me. I love to cook and share these moments with people. Yeah i am French ^_^

Music, Movies & Books

Music : Pop/rock, ambient and everything ( a bit less interesting about rap, R&B )

Favorites : Coldplay, Daft Punk, Moby, Buddha Bar...

Series : Ally Mc Beal (old but love it !)

Movies : The big lebowski, Lost in translation ...

Books : My montain (Jean George) ...

And more !!!!!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I organized a trek of 12 days in Reunion Island; I went often in catacombs under Paris and roof on top with friends; I danced completely nude at a huge party (and i remember everything); I fell in love a few years ago, it's finish but it was amazing !^^

> I am still looking for others funny things !

Teach : Roller, French, Basic English, a bit of meditation, a lot of cooking,
