Biography

Hello and Welcome to my Online Writing Portfolio

I’m a writer with many different interests, a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to communicate my ideas.

I graduated from Syracuse University with a major in Writing and Rhetoric, and minors in Psychology and Spanish, in May 2012.

Since my graduation I have worked different jobs including clerical office work, summer camp counselor and Public Relations assistant. Through these jobs and my college career I have gained experience in the fields of communications, writing advertising, and consumer experience. I have learned to express my ideas and help people, which are some of the things I am most passionate about.

I am hard working, determined, organized and always willing to learn. I am bilingual with the ability to understand, write and speak fluent English and Spanish. My skills in Microsoft Office programs, provide me with the capability to work with different types of document formats. Additionally, I am able to work with Mac and some video and photo editing programs.

Last year I began writing a blog Unstoppable Maria sharing all that has happened to me since 2012. This is the year I was in an accident where I was run over by a taxi as I crossed the street at Syracuse University a week before my college graduation. During the next year, I underwent three surgeries as both sides of my cranium were removed and then replaced. As a result of this accident, I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and I now have epilepsy. For over two years I have gone through intensive physical, speech and emotional therapy to overcome all the injuries that this accident has caused.

This blog has become more than just sharing my journey during these last few years, but showing how I’ve been able to overcome each and every one these obstacles. I have inspired and brought hope to my followers, readers and myself, showing everyone that I am still able to write and communicate with an audience. This year my audience has grown because I have added Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, and Pinterest to my social media menu.

I am confident that I can be an asset to your writing needs as I am passionate about my work and I am always ready to learn.
