“During this time, I have been using my passion to keep me creative,” sophomore Tayvea Garcia said. “I have always been the type to explain my emotions or thoughts through writing instead of verbal communication. I have been reading and getting more creative in my thinking, and I’ve been working on writing a book. It’s basically just a coming of age story on how these two kids have longed for someone to understand them, but little did they know they would find it in each other. They have both been through a lot and they just need someone. When they both happen to be in the same city magical things happened for them and they figured out they had a lot more in common than they may have seen before. I have been writing for a long time, mainly just short stories, but I really liked this idea and hopefully will write into a novel.”

“The characters I write all have a part of me in them, so during this time when I feel anxious, scared, happy or sad I write my characters that way. I make them feel real. This has been my coping mechanism for this time because it makes me feel less alone and that I have someone else feeling the way I feel who gets me. I know that these characters I write are just that but at the same time they are so much more. To me they are like my friends who I get to communicate with every now and then. I think that’s why I do get so excited about writing and I am glad to have this time to really sit and think about it. I have a lot of emotions right now and I really want to involve this somehow in my writing. I want to document what I feel right now so that my future self can see how I have grown from this and how I can better handle situations like this. I share my stories on an app called Wattpad, but the more personal ones I write I will probably share later on in life. As of right now they are more just for myself.”
