Tomorrow my cousin is going to Africa , where he will spend the next two years working with the Peace Corps. I want to wish Brian the absolute best and I don’t know if I already told him but I want him to know how proud I am. This is a very good and brave thing he is doing. He will be teaching but I know his students won’t be the only ones learning, I’m sure this will be a great experience for him and he will be a great teacher.
I won’t be able to talk to him until 2018, and by then I’m sure we both will have changed a lot, but I want him to know how much I, and the rest of our family will miss him and will be thinking about him. We will all be urgently waiting to see pictures of this adventure he is just beginning.
I am speaking for the whole family right now, we love you Brian, if we get the chance to go to Africa, we’ll visit you, if not we will be waiting right here.

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.

I agree with you Kiki. Brian is very brave and so generous to dedicate two years of his life to help and teach the less fortunate. I couldn’t do that myself. I’m sure he will also be giving up all kind of comforts that we all take for granted every day. And yes, he will learn a lot too. My Mom always said that “it is better to give than to receive”, and as usual, my Mami was right.
We are all very proud of Brian and wish him the best in his new adventure.
Yes, I just hope everything goes well for him. I got to talk to him this morning and say good bye for the next two years.
