Dina’s journey to independence has taken longer than one would desire and was definitely full with its share of challenges. Dina is a 26 years old female who is originally from India where she was born and grew up most of her life. When Dina was 2 years old, she was pushed down the stairs which resulted in a severe traumatic brain injury and severe intellectual disabilities. Dina’s journey started on the day she fled her country and became a lawful permanent resident of US. Through perseverance, determination and family support, Dina was able to achieve her goal of securing a supported employment part-time position at a government building which provides her with a minimum income, the needed job skills and opportunity to work alongside of her peers. Despite Dina’s difficulties with communicating, she was able to work effectively and took great pride of her abilities. In order to add more success into her life story, Dina accepted the resources that were provided to her through Brain Injury Services to receive literacy training. She also has a very supportive private tutor who helps her speed up her learning goal. BIS helped client in obtaining a neuropsychological evaluation that is a very instrumental guide in assessing/achieving her goals. BIS funds helped Dina in paying for medical bills, obtain a membership at her local gym and pursuing other social activities to be part of her community, purchase winter clothes and workout shoes. Last but not least, Dina is engaged in the City of Alexandria Therapeutic Recreation services that provide her with an opportunity to socialize with others and have a productive focus during her free time. Dina continues to create her own miracles with the support of Brain Injury Services.
