At times like this, when we’re all trying to stay safe, there is a large group of people doing the best they can to help keep us safe. Doctors, nurses, grocery, pharmacists and pharmaceutical workers are all putting their lives at risk to keep you and me safe.
I know this is long overdue but as I talked to a friend on video chat yesterday and I saw the two masks she wears to see patients at the hospital it really hit me. They are out there taking care of everyone, people who have the virus and people who could have the virus but don’t have symptoms. They can be infected but are doing everything they can take care of their patients and to control this pandemic.
I also thought about all of those who work in pharmaceutical companies who can’t stop working because they need to assemble more product for hospitals. Now they have to work even harder than they usually do. They are doing it all so we can be safe.
I can’t forget about restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, gas stations, and all other essential employees, without who no one would be able to stay home. So to all my friends, family and everyone out there who are putting themselves at risk and working so hard to save others, THANK YOU!
I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
