Hello my name is Bruno. I live in a city in Southern region of Brazil. I would define myself as a sociable, happy, adventurous and optimistic.
I live with my mom, my dad and my older brother. My dad used to work for the a large U.S. company as Operations Director, so we had lived in many places, including the U.S., where my brother was born. I hadn’t lived in the U.S. because I wasn’t born yet, but in 2009 we travelled to Orlando, to visit the Disney’s parks, and Miami, for me to me know the city and to visit the house and the neighborhood that my family used to live.
Talking about travelling abroad, my family always loved venturing out by our planet Earth. We’ve travelled to New York, Florida, Buenos Aires, Australia, Uruguay and many other places. Try new things and discover the world are things that my parents always supported me.
In addition to discover the world, my parents supported me the most to do my best in everything, at school, in any sport competition and in life’s situation. For them, the only way to succeed is being hardworking and doing your best anytime. Sports is another thing that my parents think that is necessary to have a healthy and good life. My favorites sports are soccer and surf, but, as a sport lover, I like many others sports: football, basketball and tennis are the ones I most like.
As the majority of the Brazilians, soccer is my passion. I practice every day at the school or with my friends and, if I could, I would be watching football games at the TV all day long. The team that I support is a team from my city one year we had won the world championship. The entire city went crazy and it was a party in every single street. My second passion is surfing. We don´t live by the beach, so in every single holiday and on vacation time, me and my friends are going to the seaside to enjoy the beach and surfing the most we can.
For me, my friends and my family are the most important things in my life. If it weren’t them, I wouldn’t have all those great experiences and moments that I’ve lived, and I wouldn’t be the guy that I am.
My hobbies are to play videogames – my favorite game is FIFA 18 and I usually play online or with friends – hang out with my friends – as I said before, I value all my friendships and spend time with them is one of the most satisfactory things for me – and play guitar – I play it every day to relax and because I like music so much and my favorites are reggae, pop rock and rap.
I study at a private high school. My school is the one of the largest in my city, with approximately 4000 students from elementary school to high school. My academic life is very important for me, with my parents always motivating me to get high grades and I always try to do my best. I would define myself as a good student because since the elementary school I have been getting good grades and always being one of the top students at class. For me, the academic life is very important too because after my school graduation I want to be in a good university. By the way, an US university always seemed to me a good option, and to make it I need to have good grades. At the university I’m planning to study law or business. I have been ever be interested in these two subjects. My older brother is studying Business at the University.
Another good thing about my school is that volunteer work have a huge appreciation there, so three times per month the school organize a volunteer event, helping elderly, children in need and sick people. I participate in these events whenever I can because I personally like to help other people and I enjoy too make other people happy.
As conclusion, I’d like to do the exchange program because the program will allow me to discover another culture, way of life and meet different people. It´s a kind of challenge as well, and I always liked to exceed my confort zone. I’m also eager to studying in an US school. As I said before, I’m an adventurous guy, and this is an unique opportunity to start a huge adventure.
