A week from now I would be starting my sophomore year of college. On the morning of August 13, 2012 my life changed forever. My friend Kamille and I were traveling from Columbus to Douglasville to my job interview. While going through Carrolton we were struck from behind by a driver whom was traveling at a high rate of speed. The impact pushed the trunk of my car completely into my front seats. In addition, the impact caused the frame of the car to strike me in the back of my head causing severe brain trauma. In order to save my life the doctors had to perform a craniectomy, a procedure where part of my skull had to be removed to allow my brain enough room to swell. As of now I am in a coma and on life support and fighting every second for my life. I believe God has a plan for every one of us. I believe He saved my life so I can be a testimony of his love, power, strength and His grace. Through the power of prayer and faith anything is possible. So if you have friends, loved ones or anyone in general that likes to talk and text let what happened to me be a reminder to them of the dangers of talking and texting while behind the wheel of a car. I'm hoping that my story can help save someones life one day by making them think twice before using their cellphone while driving.
