About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am currently completing my Master's degree and traveling in between.

ABOUT ME

I'm a grad student at Universidad de Sonora. I've lived in the United States, Mexico and Peru. I have traveled to Argentina, Chile and Brazil. I'm a person who likes to meet people from all walks of life because I believe that I can always learn something new. I enjoy going to art museums, galleries, bars with good music, the beach, libraries, having my morning coffee, walking around and observing different people and objects. Other things that I enjoy are reading, watching movies, running, and I also like going to vegetarian restaurants, though I am open to any suggestions. Overall, that is my idea of fun and every now I then I enjoy a crazy party, well who doesn't?

PHILOSOPHY

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm currently living in the city of Hermosillo where I try to participate by attending the different events that are organized by the wonderful Couchsurfing members here.
I was hosted during my stay in Chile and it was amazing. During my travels I like to use CS to meet kind and friendly people who are willing to show me around the city :) I've already met a few people and that experience has been great and I've also attended a few CS events, very fun and interesting.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was hosted during my stay in Chile and I was treated extremely well. I really loved how different it is to get the local perspective and not just the tourist side of traveling. I've also met a lot of friends with CS.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've been backpacking in the city of Tijuana, it was an amazing experience. Being in Machu Picchu was wonderful. Rio de Janeiro during the New Year's eve party was crazy and fun. I fell in love with Buenos Aires. The Mayan Riviera is a must, gorgeous.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think that one can learn from everyone really. I'm a English Teacher and languages are a great passion for me. I speak Spanish and English, and I 'm learning French. I would like to learn Portuguese and Italian.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I really like to cook vegan dishes :) and I can teach a thing or two about that. Also, I can teach a bit about Mexican cuisine. I can help you practice your Spanish or English. Maybe have a drink and a good conversation.
