    Nice comment.

    I agree about connections and networking. I wouldn't have had the job I had without my mother's connections, regardless of talent and merit. Minority groups of any kind should support each other in business instead of depending on the majority to be their employers.

    What is the main thing America has to learn at this point, as a young country?

    Ahead of countries like Germany,the UK and Australia...as I said,that's just one way of measuring a country's wealth,but America is among the wealthiest and ahead most first world countries in most of the known criterias.

    second one was physical theropist but that didnt work cause of the location

    and lastly this (cyber security) and i got my associates, now going for the bachelors online lets see how it goes

    and yes your right, its no longer what you know but who you know, if i have the right connections i might have a chance in life, but either way im moving to canada that was the reason why i went therre 8 times this year, im moving there sometime between 2-5 years so i can start over fresh with a room mate, maybe by then i might have found a wife or something idk, miami women here are all stupid and plastic/materialistic

    canada i liked the atmosphere better there were way more humble ppl there it wasnt a disaster like this dump so basically in other words im saying "i officially gave up and surrendered" this country has prove to me once more another dump and the world is getting uglier pretty soon we wont have much pretty sights to see if it gets any worse but canada lets say i go through the same shit i will be happier cause its different and not the samething as miami, iv been here in miami for the past soon to be 9 years i think its enough, friends of mine that have been here less than 3 years have asked me "how the hell did you cope?" idk what to tell em lol
    It makes sense. I left GA back in 2005 because I felt the atmosphere was too stifling. The area just wasn't for me. I think the big positive for me here in Vegas is my family. I don't really like these huge cities. I think Canada would probably be more nicer because of the nature and its people, but I'm concerned about free speech and politicizing gender shits that I've been hearing about lately.

    As for the vocations you've listed, pilot and physical therapist are really different. Pilot sounds cool AF though. I think if you manage to land a position in cyber security, you should be good. I'd recommend finding forums suited for this to make connections. My online friend that I met lived in LA, so I was able to meet him and we talked about business and writing. People are usually willing to invest time and energy into you if you have a good story, make it good. As the saying goes, those who control the narrative have the power. :3
    ZOMGZ, if you've seen my thumbs down, let me know where it is because I WANT IT BACK!

    A few things. As a teacher I feel that we could definitely have a better education system in place. Our government also likes to waste money and has virtually no oversight. Also there are not reliable regulations when it comes to what is allowed in the food we eat and the products we use.

    For some reason all people in the 3rd world idolize USA, not only in South America, but in most of Asia, especially India as well

    They worship Americans all day

    US makes a good job on us
    They are likely the only country most Brazilians care outside our own, as i see in the society, media and social medias.

    And we even had a soap opera that was successful in Brazil, called "America" about Brazilians who wanted to immigrate to the US.


    I probably have it, because NY or California are my future plans.
    No I have an Albania dream.....I want to go back home but I can not do it right now
