So I just handed in my final paper. That’s it, my first grad school class is officially over. I’m done, I can relax and enjoy my vacation, except… I still have to worry about my grades. My grade on my paper and my final grade on the class.
But that doesn’t matter now, what matters is the fact that I finished my first class as a grad student, after a TBI. Not to brag, but that’s impressive. I can’t believe I did it. I was doubting myself and didn’t think I could do it after the midterm, but I did it!
I started, I took one class, now I want to take another one. It wasn’t easy, but who said getting a Master’s Degree was easy? No one. I just need to take my time. Maybe I can take the next class next semester, maybe I can’t, we’ll see. But I liked being a student again, even if I was taking the class in my room sitting in my bed. It was a new experience.

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.
