Today I was given information about Sociedad Puertorriqueña de Epilepsia, or Puerto Rican Epilepsy Society. I had heard there was one, but when I tried searching for it online, I didn’t find anything; so I got really excited when my boss told me she works with them on some projects. She also told me that she would try to make it possible for me to meet the president of this organization, and today she gave me their card.
I already looked them up online, bookmarked the page, and read a little bit about them. One of the things I read is that they work with the Epilepsy Foundation of America, which I follow on Facebook. It was through their page that I just found out that later this month the National Walk for Epilepsy, will be held in Washinton D.C.
This event is held every year to raise awareness, teach people about epilepsy, and raise funds needed for research towards treatments for epilepsy and ultimately finding a cure.

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.
