As a content creator, Patricia wrote, directed, acted and produced her first short film, “Blink” to help bring awareness to those who are suffering from PTSD and to help support their friends and families who are also being affected by this destructive disorder. Her passion to help others comes from her own experience as a teen having to witness the effects PTSD had on her father and her family. Patricia’s father was a war hero who served in the Army Special Forces and during his time, there was little support for those who suffered with PTSD. Blink helped shed light on this debilitating disorder and in 2014, “Blink” was officially selected into the Inaugural Indie Capitol Awards in Washington, DC.
