Living a dream

 

I used to look out my window and imagine how it would be to see the world. Today, I’m living this dream here in Norway.

One of them was FK Youth Camp, where I met people from all over the world and could exchange experiences with them. Me and my Brazilian partner did a presentation about Brazil in Trøndertun and showed a little about our country and culture, it was very nice because the people loved it. I came here searching for personal and musical growth, but I found more than this: I’m changing the way I see the world and opening my mind to new things. I am learning the Norwegian language and culture, this has been a challenge every day. The people from Trøndertun are so receptive and this makes me feel comfortable and happy. I am very anxious to see my changes in the future. I came here just a month ago and I have a lot of history to count. I expect to have even more when the day to return to Brazil comes. After this experience, I will keep dreaming, each time louder.
