Born and raised in the city of Valencia, Venezuela. I have been living in the U.S. for about 18 years and I have visited Venezuela only twice since I moved here. I embraced this country in such way that I feel entirely American. During my second visit to Venezuela, I had planned to stay three weeks. However, I returned back home six days later. I couldn't deal with the country and its culture. I asked my mom to visit us here rather than having my U.S. family and myself going to Venezuela. Then again, I was very unhappy in Venezuela. Culture was the primary reason that forced me to move out of Venezuela. And after all these years here in the U.S., I just can't see myself living in Venezuela. And last but not least, it pissess me off when people bashes the U.S.

I was born in Skellefteå, Sweden and that's where I still live. A small town (approx. 32 400 inhabitants), but it still has its own problems of course, such as lack of jobs. I am a bit mixed in my feelings for Sweden; some things are really great, but in general the government nearly kisses the ground where members of the EU parliament has stood. We'd do better if we left the EU - Norway was smart enough not to join, and that country prospers.

I actually think I would not have that much of a trouble moving to another place - when I'm done with my studies that is.
