My Cape Town

I am a “heart person”. If I use my heart to speak, instead of my head, the words come easier. Actually I’m here in Cape Town because my heart was broken. My journey to Cape Town started a few months ago. I was feeling sad because my five-year relationship was over and I had doubts about my major at university. So, I decided to change. And for someone like me who loves nature, why not Cape Town?

I have never been to another continent before. I’m really far away from home and I miss my parents, my sister and my cats… but this is the best experience I have ever had. I can feel like myself here. I love the people, I love the food and the view is always amazing. It doesn’t matter where I am, it’s always possible to see the mountain and what a view!

In Brazil, I used to be lonely all the time because I was working and studying. Here in Cape Town I am never alone. In my host family, everybody is friendly. My room-mate is a quiet girl but she is really sweet.

At school, I feel the same. The teachers and the whole EC team are helpful and kind. I also have a lot of friends from all over the world here. So many different cultures, I love it!

My teachers asked me to write a short text but it’s impossible. I can spend hours talking about this city. Thanks to Cape Town, my heart is not broken anymore. I wish I could stay here longer! If I had more time, I would definitely do it. I’m glad that I chose to study at this English school in Cape Town 🙂
