I am that girl
I am the girl who has been rebuilding herself for three years. I am the girl who didn’t want to give up and won’t give up. People saying no won’t stop this girl. People said this girl wouldn’t be able to do it, but she did.
This girl works hard and doesn’t give up. This girl knows what she wants and won’t give up until she gets it. This girl doesn’t want to be a writer; she is a writer. I am the girl that won’t stop until I get there
I am the girl who loves to eat but also tries to stay active. I have no shame in eating a hamburger and fries, followed by chocolate ice cream; but I am also the one who tries to work out at least three times a week. I don’t care what people say about my eating habits, my body or any of that; I just want to eat what I want and be healthy.
I am afraid; afraid of what will they say? But I always find someone to help find my way.
I am a girl controlling epilepsy. That’s right, we’re in a fight, but I’m winning. It can be controlled and I’m fighting to win the battle everyday.
Everyday I’m fighting to be this girl; the one who fights, who doesn’t give up, who believes she can do it.
Did I mention this girl is very optimistic?

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
