Today I woke up to my mom telling me to turn on the TV, to hear about what happened in Brussels.What? What happened?
She told me there had been an attack there. I watched and listened while I got ready to go this morning. By the time I left, they didn’t have a lot of information yet, just that there had been two attacks, one in the airport and one on in the metro station. Why?
I’m still asking myself this question. But as the day went by they got more information. As of a few hours ago there had been 11 deaths confirmed in the two airport bombings, 20 in the metro station. There were also, at least 230 injuries confirmed in both bombings.
I want to pray for everybody affected by this, and other attacks. Pray for those in Baghdad, Damascus, Homs, Tunisia,and Istanbul. I keep wishing this will be the last.

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.
