I'm going to be covering a topic request from one of our listeners "What happened when I landed in this country at 18 and how did I get to where I am today, 21 years later?"

As you may know, I am originally from Brazil, and was very blessed to come here at 18. I landed in Silicon Valley and I still remember the first outing with my mom, she was explaining to me what the sign "Now Hiring" meant in Portuguese. I remember being so excited, because I saw "Now Hiring" everywhere that I went. In Brazil, we don't get these many opportunities. I got my first job at Mervyn's, and also worked at Blockbuster and Wells Fargo while going to college. After buying a music player with my first paycheck, I was pretty frugal and decided to start saving up. At Blockbuster, they absolutely loved me, I got promoted within one month of being there going from $7.25 an hour to $7.50 an hour. I got promoted to assistant store manager. And the reason that they loved me was that I was just working.
