My name is Marina Shelton. I had a severre traumatic brain injury back in 2003. I was in a coma for two months and almost didn't survive. When I moved home, my family and I were told that I wouldn't do the same things with my friends or family. We were also told that I wouldn't be able to do public school again. After I moved home for a few months I went back to school, started outpatient therapies, and to this day strive to be the best that I can be.
After we were told I couldn't go to college, I got through high school in four years and started at Dean College in 2011. I graduated with my Associate's Degree in 2015, and today am more than halfway to my Bachelors. I am a strong believer in possibilities, and strive to help others believe they can do anything if they never give up. With the help of the Brainfarmers, I know we can all work together to spread awareness and support for the rest of the world.
