About Me

I'm a student in Paris. I study languages so if you're an English or spanish speaker there will be no problem to communicate.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to read, do sports and learn about cultures. This is partly why I joined Couch surfing. I think it's a great opportunity for some exchanging between cultures! I also love to travel. I hope be use couch surfing one day to find a place to stay in foreign countries but til then I want to help others travel for a cheaper.


I'm also into sports, I live for playing basketball, I like to swim.
When traveling I like to get lost in the cities in order to discover the "real" city and not just the touristy places. I feel I have truly traveled when I feel like I've captured the essence of a city. This way of traveling is also usually cheaper.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am what you call a book worm. I am mostly keen on novels and read most books in English. My favorite book is the Alchimiste by Paulo Coelho.
As for movies, I like most movies that get selected to the Sundance festival. My favorite movie is probably 10 things I hate about you. A classic.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once was on a TV set of an Italian cooking show during Milan's Universal Exposition of 2015 where I saw this japonese /Brazilian cook battle off against another cook. It was hilarious n cause he had the weirdest accent in Italian. Fun times.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not sure what you're supposed to write in "Teach, learn, share" so I'll just say this. Whether traveling or not I believe that you learn best through experience. Most times we are out of our confort zone whilst traveling meaning that it's then we learn most. This is why I think the couch surfing experience is all about learning and sharing.

What I Can Share with Hosts

As explained before I rent out a room but I can also propose breakfast (from a local bakery) and/or guides tour around Paris on weekends depending on what you want to see and do. For these two extras, you have to request it in advance (at least 3 days in advance.)
