Since I was a little girl I wanted to come to America
The opportunity came, I packed my bags, bought a flight and full of insecurities and fear I found myself in the place of my dreams
Everything I had dreamed of was only fairy tales, nothing was rosy, I had to start a new life in a strange place
The days away from my family became my reality, a reality where loneliness reigns
Studying, working, surviving these exhausting days
I am a dreamer who now has another fairy tale to fulfill….
