Raymundo Rafael Barajas Moreno
Raymundo, as many young people, had many plans for his
life, he was ready to do whatever it took to conquer the world. He wanted to become a dentist and was studying
Odontology at the University of Sinaloa, (UAS). Among his dreams was to become successful and
start a new life, form a family and do all the things that he liked doing, his
favorite past time and sport is basketball.
Like many young people, his world was full of dreams and possibilities. However, one faithful day, and ironically, Raymundo’s
life was changed in an instance, and as a result, his life, along
with his dreams and plans were changed forever.
As he was coming back home from a basketball game,
along with his best friend, in Raymundo’s brand-new motorcycle when all of the
sudden a truck came out of nowhere and they were hit. They both went out flying
in the air like rockets. Raymundo’s friend landed in the ground and Raymundo
went out flying straight on the ground towards the border of the sidewalk hitting
his head. Raymundo laid there motionless. His friend wanted to make sure that Raymundo
was okay and tried to aid him, but Raymundo could only move his eyes. When he was asked by his friend if he was
alright, he said that he could not move, nor feel his body. He was hospitalized
and later was confirmed a quadriplegic.

This is the original post about Raymundo from “The Academy of Special Dreams”:
“Hello all, I was born in Mazatlán,
Mexico in 1999. As a child, I really enjoyed drawing and being active and
I loved playing with friends and family! My favorite sport is basketball,
so I grew up playing basketball with my friends most of the time. Unfortunately,
while studying a career in Odontology, I had an accident and become paralyzed
from my shoulders down. I am an artist now! I use my mouth to
paint. I am currently taking art classes and I really enjoy the process
to see my artwork developing from beginning to end. I truly thank
you all that support my art and help me on my way to become a successful artist.
Enjoy my artwork!”
