My name is Filipe Terenzi and I come from a big country in South America called Brazil. My life there was really fun, I went to the beach with my family and friends, I used to play soccer with the boys on the street, then everything changed.
One day my parents called my brother and me and told us that were moving to the U.S. Even though my brother was very happy, I was feeling hurt. I didn't want ed to leave my home.
Right after I turned fifteen, my parents my parents had a big party with all my close relatives. One day before we traveled, my great grandfather prayed for us and for our safety. It was a sad moment, a lot of hugs, and all my aunts were crying.
We first went to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. My grandma lives there, so she got us free tickets for all parks because she works there. After that we traveled across the country by car and moved to Fullerton California.
There I went to El Dorado High School, but I didn't know hwo to communicate with other people. I had a friend called Wallace, he was Brazilian too and had the same problem as I did. We used to hangout a lot and make fun o each other and everybody.
One fay I was feeling more confident about my English then I started to hang out with my a friend of mine from PE. HE helped me and introduce to my crush. Lately I joined choir because of him and now I'm going to an advanced level in choir. Now I have a happy life in this New World.
