Dear sir,My regards

I have came across this sentence in my textbook, second year, secondary school Egypt.
it says,
"I have became more independent since I have been away"
From a listening text about a girl who went to live abroad.

My question is that can we use arrived instead of have been so we say "I have become more independent since I arrived her"
As there is a difference in the meaning between have been and arrived.
I think arrived would be correct as It means that the action finished but have been means that she is still living there, so we can use present perfect .

I did answer this question two days ago.
