I am a dreamer

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….
