Today was international youth day and I have a cultural experience every day living with someone who is from a different country. My mom was born and raised in Brazil. Everyday she teaches me new things about brazil and its culture every day, including the language which is Portuguese. I am not from another country but living with her feels like i’m in brazil when ever she talks about brazil and how she grew up. She has told me many times how different it was growing up in brazil than when she came to the states. every day I appreciate my mom and her culture because just knowing that you are close to someone with an awesome background is like you were actually there.
