When I was younger, like high school or maybe even younger, I had a huge collection of Archie comics. Every time I found a new issue I had to have it and read it from front to back, sometimes reading them again when I couldn’t find a new one. I remember I had a box full of them.
I started thinking about that when I saw there was a new series called Riverdale. It’s amazing how after a Brain Injury, that name still seemed familiar to me and I immediately remembered it was Archie’s hometown. That couldn’t be a coincidence, that they just name a new TV series Riverdale, it had to be related to the comics.
I was right, it was Archie’s hometown and it is a series based on the comics. There’s Archie, his friends Jughead, Betty, and Veronica, and Reggie, and Josie, to name a few. Here he also plays football, like I remember he did in the comics. It has the main elements but it’s a lot darker as the plot moves around the mystery of the death of one of their classmates.
It’s not like the shows I usually like which are mainly comedies, it’s darker, but my curiosity about the show and the familiarity with the characters got me hooked. Now I have to keep watching, at least until they solve the mystery.

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.
