Greetings all!

I am currently working in Japan as an English teacher. I ran into something interesting today. One of my students is originally from Brazil, and wrote a paper in both Japanese and Portugese on her life. This is all well and fine, but the thing is that she asked me if I could translate her Portugese paper into English. If someone could be so kind as to translate the following into English for me (obviously someone fluent in Portugese) I would be most appreciative.

The paper reads as follows:

Vou falar um pouco da minha vida dez de quando entrei na escola Ushiku First.

Dez de quando eu vim para essa escola nada para mim foi fácil !!

Sempre tentando fazer novas amizades e aprendendo sempre um pouco mais da língua Japonesa.

Hoje no 3 ano tenho amigos e uma melhor amiga, náo sei falar a língua Japonesa fluentemente mais sei me virar muito bem na escola e em outros lugares também !!

Hoje estando no 3 ano sei que náo sei tudo que deveria saber mais espero me esforcar cada vez mais nos meus estudos enfrentando todos os meu obstáculos e conseguindo realizar tudo que quero, sei que náo vai ser fácil, porque na vida nada é fácil e nada cai do céu.

Mas hoje me sinto vitoriosa e orgulhosa de mim mesma por chegar onde chegue hoje e espero ir mais além !!!

Bom, essa é um pedacinho da minha vida na escola Ushiku First.


Again, any help would be GREATLY appreciated as I do not want to let my student down. Thank you so much!

Vou falar um pouco da minha vida dez de quando entrei na escola Ushiku First.

I'm going to speak a little about my life since entering Ushiku First School.

Dez de quando eu vim para essa escola nada para mim foi fácil !!

Since I came to this school, nothing has been easy!!

Sempre tentando fazer novas amizades e aprendendo sempre um pouco mais da língua Japonesa.

Always trying to make new friends and always learning a little more of the Japanese language.

Hoje no 3 ano tenho amigos e uma melhor amiga, náo sei falar a língua Japonesa fluentemente mais sei me virar muito bem na escola e em outros lugares também !!

Today in the third year, I have friends and a best female friend, I don't know how to speak Japanese fluently but I know how to get by very well at school and in other places, too!!

Hoje estando no 3 ano sei que náo sei tudo que deveria saber mais espero me esforcar cada vez mais nos meus estudos enfrentando todos os meu obstáculos e conseguindo realizar tudo que quero, sei que náo vai ser fácil, porque na vida nada é fácil e nada cai do céu.

Today, being in the third year, I know that I don't know everything I should know but I'm trying very hard in my studies to confront my obstacles and achieve everything I desire, I know that it's not going to be easy, because life is never easy and nothing falls from the sky.

Mas hoje me sinto vitoriosa e orgulhosa de mim mesma por chegar onde chegue hoje e espero ir mais além !!!

But today I feel victorious and proud of myself for having gotten to where I am today and I hope to go even farther!!

Bom, essa é um pedacinho da minha vida na escola Ushiku First.

Well, that's a little slice of my life at the Ushiku First School.
