Leaving the Nest

I was born and raised in Brazil. When I was teenager, my parents gave me the incredible opportunity to study English language in USA. I went to Denver, Colorado. It was the first time that I left Brazil. When you live in third world country, and have the opportunity to live (not only visit) a first world country, I can tell, it’s amazing how we can change and grow. Everything was new, I loved every moment and every knowledge that I was gaining.

I went do Medical School in Brazil, in another city,  it was the time that I was officially living my parents home. I had another chance to learn more about how to live. I know that in American is usual to leave parents house early, but in Brazil we do not do that usually, we often leave only we get married. Sometimes, they still leave there, even married.

After graduated as Medical Doctor, I joined the Air Force (Brazilian). It was amazing! I had a intense trainer and became official military, lieutenant. I served missions in different cities, I met different points of life views. It was a special experience.

By myself, I went to Paris to improve my French language skills. There, I had a wonderful chance to study Dermatology in one of those Top Ten Dermatology’s Center in the world. It was I dream that I could live.

Midway, I went to my hometown and there I met one Brazilian guy, who was already living USA around 17 years. Yeah, it was Love at first sight. And now, I’m living in USA.

It's time to leave the nest!

It’s time to leave the nest!

I’m not the traditional Brazilian – not at all – we don’t easily “leave the nest”. But one thing that I won’t regret never is to live by myself. If everyone could have this opportunity, they may notice how change their life’s view and it also could give you a better life as a couple.

So… leave and live! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing a bit about you. You really have gotten around. I felt the same way when I got to see other countries. I know that it’s different here in the US, but frankly, I think anyone, no matter where they live, should experience some part of the world that has a different culture. 🙂

    I look forward to your future posts. 🙂
