Jose arrived just after the big snow storm in December. He came to the home of Verna Henderson in Lead Hill from Teresina, Brazil where his folks are Ligia and Francisco. He has finished his secondary education and will go on to the university in 2015 with no specific plans for a career.
You can tell he has an easy smile and you wouldn't be surprised to hear he likes to hang out with his friends. He also likes to read and watch movies.
He hopes to improve his English in the USA and learn about the culture.
