I went to Michigan as my exchange student this year. My year started pretty Awesome way. I have such an amazing family and siblings who are willing to help me with anything. they're the reason I'm having a good time in Michigan. I also met awesome people who taught me a lot about the culture and what we do differently which I enjoyed the most. I never thought I would enjoy going out of my comfort zone but that's what it turned out.

    Joao

    Mozambique

    João was born in Sofala province. He is a playful and smiling boy with many interests. He likes to play with friends in the same neighborhood. His father died in 2012, victim of illness. In life, he was selling products at the local market. After some time, his mother remarried, but the current husband pays no attention to his stepchildren. He is making little jobs as a driver here and there and he only provides food for the whole family with his low income, while the mother plants rice to help her husband with the household expenses. As there is no money to support the school expenses for the stepchildren, João hardly can fulfill his dream of becoming a teacher.
