"Blowing the snow from my american friends' driveway before going to blow the snow from the sidewalks and the neighbours' driveways so they can make it to their garages. I liked the big sense of community you can perceive in the american suburbs as they all know winter work is much easier if you have help. " - Diego Venegas Ocampo (Costa Rica)
"America got me dancing, literally. This country has become my personal injection of life. Life which is lived, not just observed. An authentic life - not the one that others try to sell to you. America helps me keep my self-confidence by daily reminding me how beautiful I am. I mean, no one ever misses a chance! First I just listened but eventually I had no choice, but believe them. still, I came back home to Lithuania. but the dancing Gintare remains in my heart. The one who feels beautiful and has courage to remind others they are too. I still carry America with me. And I choose to not let it fade" - Gintare Krutinyte (Lithuania)
