Today was my first day as a graduate student. I spent the hole day, at home, sitting in front of the computer, making sure I get as much work done today as I could. The work I did today wasn’t difficult, but this was just the intro. It will get tougher, there’s a lot of work in the syllabus; but I can do it!
It’s really not that different that going to a regular class, except it feels like it’s more work because it takes me longer to complete a task because I go at my own pace. I also think I did more than I was supposed to because I’m afraid of forgetting something or falling behind.
So far it feels great to be studying again. I hope this feeling lasts.

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.
