Hacking Brainstem Stroke Recovery

I'd like to raise $10, 000 by Jan 31, 2019 to cover medical expenses, legal expenses, learning Pentesting, Linux, Python, and Cybersecurity, and to attend InfoSec Cons and Trainings at cons. $4000 was originally raised to cover first speaking opportunity that happened at Derbycon in October 2018. Notes on how that was used in "Updates". ||||||||||||||||Some deets: Spent years recovering from massive brain injuries and five strokes, one being an 'unsurvivable' brainstem stroke. Relearned everything from ground up using internal electrical impulses, mindfulness, ingenuity, and crossing the conscious/subconscious barrier to make what one doctor called 45 years of recovery in five. Example: using tongue resistance to determine yes/no when I had no speech, little to know comprehension of spoken word, couldn't coordinate anything and eyes didn't work. Most of what I faced was unknown. From laying in black silence for years, I hacked my way into recovering every portion of breathing, moving, seeing, hearing, speaking, and learned some massive good along the way. I feel it has implications for healing, autism, Aspergers, AI, and natural electrical systems and conscious/subconscious recall and I wish to study InfoSec/AI fields while speaking about my particular experiences|||||||||||||||¦After attending DefCon and BsidesLV Hacking conferences recently, I set my sights to speak at DefCon, Skytalks, The Diana Initiative, and Hacking Diversity next year. *heart the dream* Speaking at Derbycon was first major step. Service dog Trevor and I will be thrilled. Also, I do walk now. ;)
