Aphasia does not have to limit your dreams. You are young, which is a very good indicator as far as future prognosis goes. Talk to your doctor and find a good Speech Pathologist who has experience with Aphasia. Also find a Stroke support group to attend. In order to help yourself, continue to do all of your daily activities on your own, as much as possible, name talk about objects in your environment, news, family, whatever you can think of that will help your communication skills. And, most important of all, keep a GOOD ATTITUDE!!
