Learning English, as a ESL, when a dream comes true
Since my early childhood I had a dream of learning English , I a from a time when internet did not exist.
Legend says that Walt Disney used to reinforce the idea that when you have a dream and believe in it, you will certain have your dreams come true some day.
I came from a very poor family and using the recourses available on these old days , like cassete tapes, long playings, listening to Voice of America programs and scholarships, learned most of the basics, and because of my efforts, stayed 30 years working civil aviation .
I posted this issue, because I would like to learn stories like this one of people who insisted on his idea of studiying English as a second language.

Felicidades! You've done well in that case, congratulations.
And about Walt Disney, it's not just a legend, it's true, he did promote that idea:
When you wish upon a star,
Makes no difference who you are,
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.
