Last night I was having trouble concentrating because I was so happy I couldn’t think about how to express my happiness. Today, even though I’m still very happy, I can concentrate more and I hope I can put this happiness into words.
But I don’t just want to put it into words, I want to show it. This is why, a few months ago, when I celebrated my six months of being seizure free, I made myself a little reminder of this and I hung it from my bedroom door. After this, for the next two months, I have done the same thing, I keep a reminder hanging there all month long so I see it everyday, and I can not only remind myself how far I have gotten, but to see that I can and have to keep fighting.
Now I’m thinking, I’ve been able to do this for eight months, I can do this for eight more, or eighteen more. I remind myself that I can do this.

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.
