Chrissy Riley Speaks to the Freshman Class
Thank your Chrissy Riley for speaking to our incoming freshman class about the importance of good decision-making and possessing a strong quality of resilience.
I share my struggle, my strength, and my power. Overall, my presentation shows the encompassing aspects of my life and what I have gone through. Starting first with my life prior to my accident, I lay the groundwork for understanding who I was. Then I briefly state what happened due to the accident and what it entailed. Next, are the effects, from the brain injury, that I now live with. I talk of how I cope with them, in how I do things differently. The purpose of my talk lies not in my remorse over the entire event. It is powered by my mission in life to keep going. My goal in life is to encourage others and give hope to those who are lacking this in their lives. I hope that my story proves to people that hard work and determination gets you through the thick and thin of life.
