As of yesterday, April 8, 2022, I am officially seven years seizure free! I didn’t have time to write a celebratory blog post like I do every year but that doesn’t mean I was not happy of telling everyone I could about it.
I almost thought I didn’t make it earlier this week when because I fainted earlier this week and for a moment I was afraid it had been a seizure. It wasn’t, I just hadn’t eaten anything. I don’t know if it’s just me, but “I had a seizure” is always my first thought after anything out of the ordinary happens to me. Then I think back and remember I wasn’t feeling very well, hadn’t eaten anything yet, had no aura and didn’t feel like I do after a seizure.
I feel very proud to have been able to keep following all my neurologist’s instructions and always track of my medications, when to take them and when I need a refill.
I hope I can keep celebrating my seizure free anniversary for many years!

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.
