My goal this summer was to get a job, more important than going to the beach was to get a job, but summer is coming to an end in Puerto Rico and I still have nothing. I send and send emails, a went job hunting at the mall, spoke to store managers and left my resume and nothing.
What is it? I know it’s hard to find jobs, we’re in a crisis right now, we’re bankrupt but there are job openings and as much as I apply, I don’t get anything. Is it me, do I make a bad first impression? Is it my resume? Is it that I haven’t had a steady job after I graduated college, because I explain all that in my cover letter. Does my Brain Injury make people don’t want to hire me? Or is it my epilepsy? I mean they’re not supposed to discriminate against people with disabilities.
I know I’ve written about this a few times, but I’m sick and tired of this, I need a job. As time keeps going by and I’m unemployed, the harder it’s gonna be to get a job. I need help.

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.
