"I thought to myself, what do you really want to do with your life? You've almost lost it."
Traumatic Brain Injury survivor Angela was 23-years-old when her car was hit head-on by a reckless driver. This is her recovery story.
Angela had to use a walker, wore an eye patch, and had visible bruises. "When I would go out, people would stare at me."
"Living at home with my parents was 2 steps, 3 steps backwards. I thought, 'What am I really doing with my life now?' I was completely dependent on my family and friends for support and the doctors to give me the hope."
With strong determination, she declared, "I can choose to be a victim or be like a warrior!"
"I knew that one day I wanted to be a motivational speaker and think that all this hard stuff that's happening to me, there must be a bigger purpose. And I was going to do something about it. I'm going to make sure the world knows that I can be a hope angel for them."
At the end of the video, Angela shares her advice about brain injury recovery as she approaches the Memorial Day weekend anniversary of her injuries.
