2/2 “I was on my way from work to my house. I got off the tram and just when I wanted to cross the street another tram hit me. I don’t remember much of what happened but I know that I crushed the front window of the tram with my head. I immediately was brought to the hospital by ambulance. The first four days the doctors thought I broke my neck. Luckily that wasn’t the case. However I did break my leg, damaged my artery and I had a heavy concussion. I’m not sure how to describe it but my accident has saved me from living a life that wasn’t meant for me. I unsubscribed from University and I am thinking of applying for the Film Academy. It’s really clear to me now, I need to do what makes me happy and I am sure that even though my parents might not always understand my decisions, I know they will still love me.”
