Happy 2009 to everyone!
First, I want to say that I am really happy to be a blogger for a month. It is an honor and a great way to start a year. During this time I hope to improve my English, and I expect that you help me. I hope to hear about you and I wish that you help me to write this blog during this month.
Let me talk about myself. I am 31 years-old and I live in Fortaleza, the capital of the State of Ceará in Brazil. Fortaleza is a sunny city near beach. But I was not born here. I was born in São Paulo (the Brazilian biggest city ), and when I was 3 years-old I had to move with my parents to Pereiro (one of the smallest). I came to Fortaleza when I was 15 years-old. I had to do it because there was not good schools in Pereiro. I wanted to go to the university, so I had to move to a city with better schools.
I studied economics at Universidade Federal do Ceará. Actually, I am doing Master’s Degree in Transportation Engineering at the same university. About my job, I’m working as independent consultant (I will talk about it later). Before, I worked in a construction company, in a bank and in a railway company.
When I was 18 years-old I started to study english. Since the first class I enjoy this language. But I had to interrupt my studies for sometime because I had to work and there was not much free time. Now I am back (and in a great style, don't you agree?).
I want to thank to BBC for the opportunity to write this blog. And a special thanks to Dima Kostenko (from BBC).
Happy 2009 to everyone!!!
