Hi, I’m Demi, and let me tell you about my pandemic story. One day, on March 16th, 2020, we had to pack our stuff and go home for two weeks, which extended to a year and a half. For a few weeks, I thought that we would go back to school soon, not knowing I wouldn’t see my friends until April 2021. We had to do asynchronous work and then an idea came to me.
I saw that my brother’s class did Zoom, so I emailed my teacher an idea to do Zoom so we can see each other. Due to that, we could learn online and see each other. When class was over, I would linger a little longer to talk to my friends. When I had recess and lunch, I would be reading or trying to finish my homework early. I would also study when I had the chance. Me and my family would sometimes call other family members and sometimes other family members would visit. I would also schedule Zoom meetings with my friends to communicate with each other. Although many don’t think we can live life like before Covid, I will always have a bright hope.
