Covid-19 Survey Results; How Covid has affected us.
By Obenewa Adu
Everyone has been affected by COVID-19 in similar and different ways. Listen to my podcast to hear different experiences.
I was a junior when the pandemic first hit, it completely changed my life. Going into my senior year I realized that I was almost a completely different person, I truly understood that COVID had changed everyone’s lives in different ways. Yet there was still some unity in this extremely difficult time. I was so interested in how other teachers, high school students, and college students were dealing with the pandemic so I conducted a survey getting all of their perspectives. I then complied the answers into a podcast.
