About Me

Hi! I am Francisco, a Chilean Industrial Civil Engineer from University of Chile. During the last couple of years of my studies, I volunteered in a home for children at social risk with various national and international students. This role led me to manage the unit of "Volunteers without Borders" which motivated exchange students to work with us in social projects.
After this wonderful period, I decided to live and study for a year in California, USA, where I shared an apartment with people from all over the World. Upon returning to Chile, I had the idea in my head of expanding this amazing experience in my own country. That's why, over 10 years ago, I bought an apartment in Vitacura that I have shared with people from many countries of America & Europe, which has impacted my life in the most positive way. Respect, generosity and tolerance are some of the values I have strengthened and learnt to live by throughout the years.
My family has grown as I have adopted new "brothers and sisters" with whom I have close relationships, despite the distances between us. Moments of joy, excitement and brotherly love have been numerous over the years. Therefore, this initiative must not stop and it has certainly motivated me to work on a project in which other foreigners can also enjoy an unforgettable human experience in my city and country. It is not just about delivering a nice, comfortable place, but also creating strong bonds that enrich the lives of those who share our familiar living environment.
So, my place is always open to meet new friends and interesting people around the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I currently share apartment with foreigners.
