I got home today after spending a few hours getting lunch and trying to charge my phone thinking my apartment would still be the sauna it was this morning, maybe even more hot. I came in, congratulated my dogs for not braking or destroying ANYTHING and went on to put my purse in my room. After a few minutes I noticed there were lights turned on in my house.
It couldn’t be… I went around the house turning things on and guess what? POWER’S BACK!!! I couldn’t believe it!
First thing I did was go around the apartment and start turning fans on, then I started telling people the news, calling and texting anyone who would care. I even celebrated with Indy and Sandy; they didn’t know why I was so excited but they were happy I was happy.
On my way home I talked to one of the guys who was working on fixing the diesel leak and he told me that there are still so many people without power due to many different things from fallen trees and lamp posts, to people stealing fallen cables. I really hope they fix all those other energy sources and everyone can have their homes, and businesses working again.

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.
