Right now we are all facing something unknown and have to cancel or postpone events, whether we like it or not. This is the case for everyone graduating this year from high school and college.
Believe me, I know it sucks not being able to be a part of the celebration of your hard work and achievements for those past four years or more. I know this because I did not go to my college graduation when I graduated either. Being told I missed it because I was in the hospital sucked. I wanted to go to my graduation, I always expected to go to my graduation. But I found a way to go a year later and had a great time. I saw my friends and professors again, which was great after everything that happened.
So believe me, even if it takes a few months or a year to celebrate your graduation , it won’t be any less special, exciting or important. It will always be important and a day you will remember. Maybe not everyone you expect to be there won’t be there but you will always cherish the time spent with those who are. I didn’t get to spend it with my whole family but my mom and I had a wonderful mother/daughter weekend that no one can take away from us.
Just remember you can always find good, even in bad or difficult situations.

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.
