Studying hard and staying in touch

My name is Bruna, and I am from Brazil. I was an exchange student in the United States through PAX during the 2011/12 school year. It was by far the best experience of my life, and my little sister is going on the same adventure next year.

I am 24 years old, and since I finished my exchange year, I have gone been back to visit my host family and friends in Michigan. In fact, I am dating one of my best friends from my exchange year!

I am a medical student in Brazil and will graduate next year. I plan to move back to the United States for my residency program.
