Today is my step dad Jose’s turn. He told me not to write about him, just to say thanks Jose, but he deserves more than that. I can’t abide to his wishes since our relationship is mostly based in friendly fights, so I have to do the opposite of what he asked me.
But seriously, Jose has been a great addition to our family, he was the missing piece in our house. Jose is that person who doesn’t have a bad bone in his body, he’s just a happy guy who does everything he can to get his job done, and to make his family happy. I am not his real daughter, but he treats me like that, he always makes sure I have my medicine and that I am safe. Every time I’m stressed Jose tries to make me happy, he just wants me to be happy and that’s a father.
My brother and I are baggage that came along with his wife, but he has done everything he can to make us feel as his son and daughter, and we are happy with him as a father. He is a funny guy, who finds fun in the simplest things, like watching trucks, or home improvement videos on You Tube. He’s one of a kind.
Love you, Jose

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.
