I am amazed at how God transformed my life in so many ways. I grew up in a poor neighborhood in Brazil with very scarce opportunities for growth. Most of my friends from high school ended up pregnant, in jail, or using drugs. I have no idea how I could succeed without God opening doors for me. I remember listening to a message about our dreams being a little fraction of what God has for us, and I am sure I am a living proof of this.

I am studying in one of the most expensive places to live in. Personally, I like the passage in Ephesians 3:20, “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…”.  I think this directly relates to my life. I have the opportunity that many rich people born in Brazil haven’t had, and the most amazing thing is that I have been able to stay here for the glory of our Lord.
