On Wednesday, LifeSkills Village, one of my blog’s followers, tweeted me asking for an email where they could reach me to talk about my blog. This made me very curious, so I gave them my blog’s email address.
The next day, on Thursday I received an email directly from them, inviting me to collaborate with them on their new project, The TBI Portal. They are asking for my help by sharing my story and anything I think is important to share about a TBI.
I am so honored to be asked to do this. This is one of the reasons I started this blog, to be able to share my story and help others who are going through the same thing. I know patients need this, their family and caretakers need this, and I am more than happy and willing to provide all the help I can, because I know what it is like, and I wish I had this while I was going through my recovery.
I am so happy to be asked to join this team, to help people, and to be asked to do this by writing, is just a dream come true, and I feel honored that they asked me. I only hoped that someone would notice what I was saying when I started my blog, and they did! Now I hope I can really do this, I can use my words to make a difference in someone’s life and to help them.

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.
