I wanted to try something different and since I was always interested in the USA, I decided to give it a try and take the opportunity to improve my English. After arriving in New York, I was overwhelmed by all the different people and different smells. I was afraid of being in New York by myself, but soon enough I made new friends and New York because like my second home. Living in New York made me more open minded. My self-esteem when up and I learned that nothing is impossible.
