During this time she lived in a closed off expatriate community and attended a North American school, so the contact to her country of residence and it's people was seriously limited. At the age of ten she and her family finally moved to North America, where she grew up. In USA she moved frequently, her famiily first settled in Massachusets, then move to Houston, she then would travel to different cities within the USA before settling in LA.
