Current Miss Oregon suffered from a Traumatic Brain Injury when she was a freshmen in high school and she wants everybody to be aware of how serious this is. I was very happy to hear that there is another voice out there for TBI and that there are more people out there sharing information about this.
You can’t see signs of this, you don’t know unless people tell you they suffered this, but it is a part of our lives, it changes you as well as your family and everyone around you. It makes me really happy to see people talking and sharing information about this.

Miss America Contestant Is a Voice for Traumatic Brain Injury

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.
