Begonia?

Asked November 1, 2016, 11:59 AM EDT

Hi, I received this plant from a friend of my sister in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Drove it to Temple, TX in my car. It did extremely well until I arrived. 2 leaves were touching a window and got burned when I stopped for lunch. Has done well since. Just repotted it per her instructions and it's struggling. Not sure what it is or what to do. I'm usually pretty good with plants.
