Navigating Life Amid A Pandemic
I will be interviewing three people to ask them about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their lives. I will be interviewing people from different ages and positions.
For this project, I wanted to get insight on people of different ages and occupations. I wanted to take part in this podcast project because I care about hearing the potential pain people go through when in difficult times. It was very eye opening and interesting to see my mother’s viewpoint on the pandemic compared to the others I have interviewed. I never knew these people in my life felt at their very lowest right in front of me. Essentially, I wanted to raise mental health awareness and hoped to create a safe space where people can talk about their issues as we live life. We are able to dissect and understand the complexities as our days go by. Through this project, I hope you learn that you can’t read someone just through their looks but by what their voice tells about them. It was very interesting and exciting for me to create this project, I hope you enjoy it too!
