Brazil
Hello everyone !
I'm gonna introduce myself. I'm a brazilian guy from a favela in Rio De Janeiro. I'm 18 y old.
To live in a third / second world country is harder than you think. But this isn't an excuse , of course!
So here I am . My reasons are kinda obvious.
I'm tired of living in poverty and having to throw myself on the ground everytime when a shooting begins. The weird thing is that I have been watching a lot of videos on YouTube about self development and I have finished both TMF and UNSCRIPTED. So there is a enormous discrepancy with what I think and the people who live around me . My plan is the following : I'll bet on my strenghts and learn to code web apps in Rails . After that I'll be able to freelance , finally leave my parents home and live alone. So with that code skill I'll build a online business in my spare time.

PS: Don't tell me to get a 9-5 job because Brazil'economy is in serious trouble.

Glad that you are aware of this, and that you are being PROactive and are trying to do something about this then the latter. I suggest you take heed to an example from MJ's life. his environment was not right for his mindset and his vision so he shifted base to resurrect himself. Maybe you will be able to do the same since the environment of a favela is definitely cumbersome not just from a physical standpoint but a mental one. No more mental anguish and hardship.
