On March 29, 2015 I decided to share the journey I had been on for three years. I was scared and a little insecure, but today, nine years later I’m proud to say I have lost some of that fear and insecurity. It’s still difficult putting myself out there and waiting to see if people respond to what I say, that fear doesn’t go away, but it’s easier to handle.
My life has changed so much throughout the last 11 years. I love being able to look back and see those changes. I also love being able to get most of what I’m feeling off my chest and having a positive response to it. It has been one of the best ways to deal with everything.
Here is the blog post that started it all nine years ago:
It’s my turn to tell my story
Published by mariacristinasanfeliu
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.
