I am from Brazil. I decided to challenge myself by moving to California to learn English because I didn't speak any English so I came here a year ago. I left my family, my friends, I left everything. Now I am here. I intended to be here for six month to learn English and then I decided to be here forever because I could see how my good lifestyle here. So I'm pretty happy because I am so proud of myself because now I can speak English and can have a conversation and I started studying. I am in college now. It's been hard for me because I am alone. Now I'm not alone anymore because I have a boyfriend. Now I have my own business and I’m working really hard to make some money and keep it steady and keep being a nice person. I would like to help more people. I see I can help many people here.
In Brazil I lived more inside the box but here because I have nobody I don't have rules for myself so I can do what I believe.
I have a bear on my bed. Ii is nice companion to sleep with together. He is so cute. Sometimes my bear is upset with me, at my house, because I’m sleeping at my boyfriends house.
