Julian Saavedra

Julian was involved in a motor vehicle accident several years ago. Just graduated from high school and due to commence study in linguistics, Julian walked onto a road and was hit head-on by a car. Julian suffered a severe traumatic brain injury.

 

As part of his rehabilitation, Julian started translation Synapse publications into his native tongue - Spanish. Julian now volunteers at Synapse 3 days a week translating our Bridge magazines. 

 

Julian is passionate about spreading a message of hope, particularly to other young people who find themselves suddenly living with a disability: "If you're a young person with an ABI don't feel down or sad or destroyed because everything will improve, everyday you are alive you are blessed. Be strong."
