I am from the hustle

By Sergio Raul Gomes Fernandez  |   From : Miramar, FL, USA  |   School : Everglades High School

I am from climbing trees and playing on the streets

I’m from collecting and trading cards to stick on my album

I am from hearing Bossa Nova and dancing samba on carnival time

From eating churrasco and feijoada on a Sunday while watching a soccer game on the Tv

I’m from going to the beach and appreciating the girls wearing biquinis

I’m from the guaraná and the açaí trees

From my dad leaving home when I was 4 to give me a better life and from my mom working at three jobs to pay for my education

I’m from waking up early to achieve my goals

I am from the hustle

From having conversations with random people on the buses, subways, and any other public transportation while crossing the big city – São Paulo

I’m from Sergio and Silvana

I am from thanking God every day for all the opportunities I’ve had in life

From getting home exhausted after practice

I am from the nice and fresh subtropical breeze.
