I had just arrived at work this morning and I was reading an article about Uber in Puerto Rico; is it good, not good? Now suddenly the taxi drivers are good? I was hoping to get to the part where it made sense but then I felt dizzy. My head was spinning and that scared me. Why am I suddenly feeling dizzy, I thought. I was really tired from going to the gym yesterday , after not going for a week, but that was no reason to be dizzy. I had breakfast and had a Diet Coke after to wake up a little.
I thought it might be a seizure, that’s what I automatically think now when I don’t feel well, so I called Mami. I always call my mom when I feel something is wrong, she’s my emergency contact. She calmed me down saying that I have never been dizzy before a seizure, it had to be something else.
I ate the crackers I had in my purse, I put them in there once and never took them out. When I felt better I got some water and started to work.
It was weird and I don’t know why I felt dizzy, but my family said it’s been a long time since I felt that way, apparently that happened pretty frequently to me, but I don’t remember that. I guess it happens when I haven’t eaten well.
But all this brings me to another point, which I forgot to celebrate; I have been seizure free for a a year and 3 months since Friday!

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.
