God guides us continuously

In 2010, when I was still living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I had the opportunity to spend the month of June in the United States. Among other activities, I visited a college I was interested in applying to.

It was a wonderful visit. I liked this college very much and was excited about the possibility of studying there. However, the thought of being away from my boyfriend—one I had at that time in Brazil—of being away from my family, and of leaving behind my life in Rio de Janeiro made me feel sad and fearful. I also felt nervous about the application process, which involved preparing for two tests in English and getting the required scores to be accepted by that college. I was feeling happy and, at the same time, very anxious.
