My American story started when…
My American story started when I moved to the United States at the age of 16. My parents were missionaries, I grew up in Brazil and we would come to the U.S. once every four or five years. Even though I was American and spoke English, I was not really American because I have never lived in our culture before, so it was difficult making that transition. I have learned to make the United States my home and I love it here.
