Hello dear host family!
I am a boy from Pernambuco – Brazil. My state, Pernambuco receives thousands of tourists every year with the wonderful parties and places we have; festivities such as Carnival and São João. Here from corner to corner we have several wonderful places to visit, such as the beautiful beaches, an example is the Porto de Galinhas beach. We have the Marco Zero, where the capital of Pernambuco (Recife) begins, and the beautiful cities of the country town! The food here is also exceptional, we have as examples cuscus, brigadeiro, canjica, paçoca and tapioca.
I study at an school in my city, where from Monday to Friday I have 5 (five) lessons of 50 (fifty) minutes duration (each) I go to and from school taking bus everyday. My father’s profession is a public bus driver, but unfortunately a sickness has taken him out of service since last year, and my mother, because she no longer has working conditions, because she has bone problems, she only takes care of the house everyday. So I always make the most effort, even thought I don’t have so many conditions, so that in the future I can give a better life for my family. I’m a quiet boy, I have a great relationship with my family and friends, I like to study, to watch the games of my team, I love children and animals, to be inside the news that run in the world, to listen music, preferably electronic music and hip hop.
I love to play and watch sports, soccer is what I love the most, and what I practice most. But I like other sports that unfortunately aren’t practiced here in Brazil and I have a lot of willingness to watch. I like Ice Hockey and Basketball, for example. I like American football too, but that I don’t know much, and I would like to know. I love to experience new cultures, to get along with new people, and of course, to know new places. With this exchange I am focusing a lot on my learning in the USA and also a very productive improvement in my second language, in this case English, which is one of most spoken languages in the world and opens space for many things, mainly jobs. I am a communicative person and I hope to get along well with you all and make new friendships for life! I will do my best to bring joy and good things to your home and your family.
I do not like egocentric people and they want to be better than other people, because the life has taught me that we are all the same regardless of anything. I hope that my exchange is unforgettable in the best way possible, teach me many things and that I return to Brazil with the suitcase full of knowledge, wisdom, and of course… great stories to tell and share my experience with my family, friends and other people.
Thanks for read my letter! See you soon!
