These are the words of Guilda Castro:
Hi my name is Guilda Castro a 45 years old Ecuatorian housewife living in the U.S for the last 4 years with my 3 boys and husband and I working at a school cleaning and disinfecting the rooms due to the quarantine, I love my job because I can practice more my english skills, even when they are not that good, in these times it was hard for everyone in my family because I have to work every day so I feel scared that I will get sick so thank god my family and I are doing okay in this times in was a big twist for everybody however I tried to practice my english since I can not go outside I have more time to be with my family
