Esthela Prado is currently a junior. She is in band, uniform crew, powerlifting, and FFA. Ever since Covid-19 has started, she has not really been able to do much. She has been staying in shape for powerlifting by exercising as much as she while staying healthy. Earlier this year, she did break her foot, so she was not able to move around much without getting injured even more.
With Esthela being in band and powerlifting, both organizations have practice after school. Prado goes to powerlifting then heads on over to band. Due to this pandemic, she does not really have practices after school, but she does have her band class. During this band class, she plays her music and marches as much as she can. As for FFA, she has not really been able to go out and go to the farm, but she tries her best to go whenever she can. For the uniform crew, she has not been able to do anything. The uniforms for the marching band are in the band hall at Memorial and she has not been able to go. We wear these uniforms for game days , and since we have not been allowed to go back, she has not been able to participate other than going to the zoom meetings and texting on the chats.
Prado does work, so she makes sure to stay as healthy as she possibly can. Along with working, Prado states that she is balancing school and work “pretty well.” She always makes sure to wear a mask and sanitize her hands as much as she can. “I would love to go back to my everyday life before this pandemic, but health and safety comes first when it comes to all this.”
