Roy Aguilar graduated from Esperanza Academy in 2014. He has since moved to China as a journalist just in time to cover the novel coronavirus. NBC10 picked up his story, sharing his thoughts and his video about his experience. He urges that we need to do the considerate thing. We may personally feel invincible but if we do not comply with staying at home we are putting many people at risk who cannot fight the virus. “…Nothing is more crucial right now than simply staying home. In order to beat this seemingly invisible enemy, this is what needs to happen,” he says. Read NBC10’s coverage of our alum here.
