Hi, I`m João Pedro, a 17 year old kid who likes cars, funny things and a lot of stuff.
So, I was born in one city in Brazil, and raised in another city further south. I have two younger sisters, they are the coolest sisters ever. My dad is a plane pilot, he`s been doing it for his whole life and is really passionate about flying, and my mom takes care of my sisters and studies. Last year, my parents moved to the U.S, but I live with my grandma and the coolest cat you can meet.
Now the cool stuff, in school and in my social circle, I`m a bit different from the others, when I was about 4 or 5 years old, all I did was play with toy cars, and as the years went on, that turned into something bigger, a passion I have for cars that leads my life. Almost everything I do in my free time is car-related. Drawing, watching, playing and racing cars on simulators, it`s my big passion. I have a lot of dreams, but the biggest one is to be a race car driver in NASCAR.
Besides this, my life is pretty normal, I really like going to school, for many people it`s a hustle, but I learned to enjoy each day to the most, and take something good from it.
I don`t have a ton of friends, but the few ones I have are really great, I`m just not the kind of popular guy in school. I like going out, it`s really cool to get to know new places, meet people, play some sports, I think it will be awesome to go out there because it`s gonna be a new city, so there`s tons of new places to see, things to do, and food… food is really great. In my home city I kind of know everything already so I don`t go out as much.
My parents and I used to go to a park here and play tennis, basketball, many sports, I would build some lego cars with a motor and race around the park, really cool, we also make barbecues sometimes, pretty much, I play a lot. Lately I`ve been doing some paintings, a lot of drawing, and trying to finish some books before the trip.
Well, that`s about what I have room to say here, just wanna leave a note, it would be really cool if the family I went to had another kid, a host brother/sister, or another exchange student, feel like that would add to the awesome year it`s already gonna be, hope you are having a fantastic day, bye!
