I was born in the midst of a middle class family like millions of other Mexicans. This motivated me from very young to strive ahead and pursue my future with my own effort. When I was 18 and I had finished my technical career, I had the opportunity to start working in a large automotive agency which would launch my professional life.At 22, I started my own auto shop and, even though it only lasted for 2 years, it gave me a very good experience as a small entrepreneur.I then returned to work with the auto agency for another 2 years. After this, I realized I did not have much of a future there, so I decided to find other options. After a few months without work, I finally got a job as a driver- messenger with a private company. Due to the working schedule I had, I was able to take English classes, since I’ve always liked and wanted to have this knowledge.On September 25, 2003, as I was driving on the Guadalajara-Chapala highway almost at midnight, my life changed radically. The only explanation I have is that unexpectedly, and out of nowhere, a horse crossed my path galloping in front of my vehicle in the middle of the road. After recuperating consciousness, I could only hear the ambulance sirens and the paramedics trying to pull me out of the vehicle I was driving - I had crashed against the horse. It was at that very moment that I realized I had lost my body movements due to the accident.
