Default Hello from Brazil![2]

Hello guys. My name is Paulo, I live in western Brazil, I study business management at a local university and I'm 20 years old.

Well... Finland got to my life when I was about 10. My oldest brother at that time was going to do a exchange programme in New Zeland, so I found out the AFS catalogue and also started to search and read countries I'd like to go when I had the age to do an exchange programme myself. At that time all I wanted was to go somewhere distant, with a different language, with snow and all that... so I really got into scandinavian countries, and all I did was await for the time pass by.
Unfortunately my family lost a lot of money, so we didn't have fonds to pay an exchange programme. However I never gave up about it.
I expect to go to Finland to do a master course, in some years, but I'd be really happy to live there forever. If you hear it from a person who never went to Finland, you might think that person is crazy. But weirdly, somehow, I feel so good when I even see picture of Finland, the lanscapes, the people, the cities, the rural area... everything seems to please me.
I'm sure if I have the oportunity to go there, I will give a 100% of myself in everything I'm going to do. Imo, doesn't matter the work you have, as long as you have a pleasant enviroment around you. And that's what I'm searching.

I hope I'm going to make new friends in here, as much as learn a little of finnish language.

OMG! Just look at all that text.
Maybe you can just welcome me and skip the reading. :P
That's alright too.

btw, sorry for the english mistakes. I think you can understand it.
