About Me

I'm a vegan film student from Portugal who loves traveling and cinema. In my life I’ve been trying to expand my knowledge as possible as I can, so I can feel I’m always evolving and not stuck with the same ideas I had before. I travelled a lot in my youth, thanks to my parents, to countries like Brazil, Sri Lanka, Mozambique and Jamaica and those experiences gave me the ability to know that there is always a new perception to be had and that no matter where you are, you're only actually living your small field of reality and that you can learn and expand yourself through the knowledge of others.

I also lived in Italy and Greece for a while and got to learn how a different country and environment can change so much my state of mind and ideas. In Italy I did an Erasmus in Genoa, and in Greece I was volunteering in the island of Chios helping with the refugee crisis and trying to make the people who were fleeing from war feel welcome in Europe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet authentic people on their own unique paths that probably I wouldn't meet otherwise.
