Carissa Pearl Moya, Senior (Magnolia, Part 1)

My name is Carissa Pearl Moya, a current senior at Magnolia High School, and I am in the midst of transitioning from a world that I have come to known for the past 12 years into adulthood as I choose where I go for the next four years. Senior year—the most thrilling and exciting year, yet—is meant to be celebrated in multiple ways, hence students look forward to this year the most. Football games, senior activities, pep rallies, and dances are just some of the icing; more importantly, graduation poses as the coronation of our transitioning and the tip of the iceberg where our families, friends, and teachers celebrate one of our biggest milestones before we head off to college. However, all of this disappeared in an instance. At first, the news of the novel coronavirus, originating from China, became one of the biggest jokes in our country, unknowingly the worst has yet to come. One by one, countries brace the impact of the virus and countries such as Italy become the epicenter, followed by the United States of America.
