14 Things You Can Do Every Day To Protect Your Mental Health As You Age
It seems very appropriate to share this article today, tomorrow being the day that I am officially one ear older. I really like that they word it nicely and don’t say “as you get older”, but “as you age”.
You must be thinking, “what is this girl talking about? She still has her whole life ahead of her.” Well, that is true, but life kind of gets away from you after a TBI or any accident that serious. You don’t realize it, but six years go by in a flash and you don’t do all the things you had planned for life in your twenties and you end up spending a lot of time alone.
After reading this article I realized that even though I haven’t done what I had planned in my twenties, they haven’t been wasted either. I still learned a lot, especially about how to live life to the fullest, be thankful for everything you have and not to take friendship for granted.
I need to keep working hard, my twenties are not over yet but I can’t let them get away from me.

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.
