Today I met the president of the board or directors of Sociedad Puertorriqueña de Epilepsia or Puerto Rican Epilepsy Society which I had mentioned before. My boss had told me I’d have the chance to meet them, and that day came today. It was great, meeting someone with such an important position who works to help people like me. She told me about all the things they do to help people with epilepsy, such as providing therapy, and information about epilepsy. They have a few centers on the island, and it was also great to see them reaching out in activities such as the Walgreens 5K to let people know about them.
I was given information to reach out to them, not only for any help I might need, but to share my story with them. This was very generous on their part and I got a very good first impression from them.
I am very happy this type of organization and help exists in Puerto Rico, and is engaging in activities such as this one. And don’t forget, the Walgreens 5K will be held this Sunday.

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.
