(Jamaica Gleaner) One year ago, 33-year-old Deana-Rae Clayton was an all-Jamaican woman with a rich island accent. However, after partying with friends in Negril, a horrible car crash would send her world into a tailspin, claiming the life of a friend and leaving two others nursing serious injuries. The fun-loving vlogger would also awake from a coma to a new life with an American, now British accent and left-handed.

When Clayton first awoke from a coma two days after the accident, she found herself speaking with an American accent, which gradually changed to a British accent months later. Doctors described the phenomenon as foreign accent syndrome – a speech disorder that has caused a sudden change to her native tongue.

The accident also left Clayton physically challenged and blinded in her right eye. She also suffers from memory loss.

“In the accident, my head trauma caused a stroke and that gave me brain damage,” explained Clayton, whose upbeat spirit and zest for life has not been devalued by her traumatic experience as she steadily tries to piece her life together again.
