Episode 3 – Alexa Dipersio; concussion and future plans

Alexandra is a 2nd year student at University of Toronto and has been suffering from PCS (post concussion syndrome/persistent concussion symptoms/prolonged concussion symptoms) for 6 and a half years. Although she was forced to stop dancing, she has continued her love of performance by acting and singing in her room all the while trying to balance school, life, and her concussion symptoms.

Alexa talks about her challenges and her questions about what the concussion and PCS could mean for her. An amazing talk!
