These days, if you get sick or have any symptoms of anything, the only thing anyone thinks about is Coronavirus. That makes complete sense to me because, what if you do have it? Well, you have to get tested.
So, after having a headache and fever, I went to get tested for COVID19. I was nervous, not so much about getting tested but about the results. I just kept thinking it would be so ironic that after I spent two months in quarantine in my house, I would get it now.
I got the viral test which checks a sample from your respiratory system with a swab from your nose. This test tells you if you currently have the virus. If you test negative it does not mean that you cannot get it, it means that you did not have it when you were tested.
I got my results back today and I am very happy to say that they were negative! It was such a relief! Turns out I had dengue. But this does not mean that I or anyone else who has tested negative should let our guard down. We still have to wear our masks and keep at least six feet of distance from others. The same rules still apply, just because you test negative does not mean you are inmune, it means you don’t have it now.
If we don’t take precautions we are not only putting ourselves but others at risk too.

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.
