WHAT IS MEXICO CITY FOR YOU?
I arrived in the great city of Mexico in 2012 as a student. I was surprised by its immensity, but above all by the diversity that characterizes them.
Five years later I returned and the city gave me the opportunity to work in the architectural field. I am fascinated by its multiculturalism.
Discovering new places enriches my experiences at every moment, being able to travel the city in the different means of transportation that the city offers, crossing from north to south, from east to west, by subway, with only five pesos!
I also like to ride my bike and enjoy my commute.
Coming from the province, I have had the opportunity to live all over the city and get to know different "barrios", from San Angel to Santa Maria la Ribera, and I have always shared with roomates, so I am very committed to coexistence, respect and empathy among totally different and unknown people.
