Hello every one ! My name is Paula pereira . I’m from Boston MA . I’m 17 years old and my birthday is August 13 so I’ll be celebrating my 18th birthday with you guys . I’m from cape verd which is located on  the west coast of africa if you’re wondering , so I wasn’t born here. I loveeee food especially my mothers cooking , I love to shop and read books as well . I’m mostly excited to try new food  , learn about the culture and  getting to know you guys . I’m kinda nervous just because I’ve never traveled alone .
