My name is Jose Carlos. I am an agronomist from the Federal University of Vales do Jequitinhonha and Mucuri, campus Diamantina in Minas Gerais, Brazil. I was accepted into The Ohio Program for a one-year agricultural exchange in the United States. It is a dream for me to visit the United States through the exchange program linked to Ohio State.
I am grateful for the professionalism and attention of those responsible for this program which gave me all the necessary support. I will arrive in Columbus, Ohio, in April. During this program, I intend to make new friends, learn about other cultures, improve my English, and prepare myself to enter a graduate degree program at Ohio State.
