Hello dear friend,
How are you? Hope you are doing well. I have been feeling a bit strange lately, maybe it’s because I have received the information about my host family, what has made it all seem so real for the first time.
Don’t get me wrong, I have know it’s real as soon as I received the acceptation letter months ago, but today a month, give or take, before the trip itself, the penny has finally dropped.
Oh, how silly I am, I have forgotten to introduce myself….
Hi, I am Beatriz, I am 16 and Brazilian. I am the girl in the left with the sunglasses. In a month or so I will be on a plane to England, I am quite excited about it, but a little nervous too.
I think it’s normal to be nervous since it’s a big thing.
To be going to live for a year in another country, away from my family is not an easy decision to make, but it is a good one. For me, it means to get out of my comfort and learn new things that will help me grow as a person.
