How has Covid 19 affected you?
As a university student, it has affected me mainly by taking away my lectures and face-to-face teaching time. However, it has also meant that I have had to cancel trips including not having been able to visit my dad in Brazil who was ill and has consequently passed away with cancer last month.
What lesson has Covid 19 taught you so far?
People, including me, rush too much. I tend to feel guilty when I spend an hour doing something that isn’t work… this time at home has made me relax and remember other passions such as cooking, stretching, reading – all things I do not want to stop doing when things go back to normal. It seems that the less you run after time, the more you have it.
Who do you live with?
My mother, my dog and two cats. During quarantine, my best friend is also staying with us.
What do you miss the most?
Travelling. I am a bit of a travel addict, I usually travel every month, even if it’s just for a weekend. I obviously miss hanging out with friends as well.
Tell me about your current situation.
Thankfully, my mother and I have been saving money so this hasn’t affected us financially too much. I have been taking this time to connect with myself a bit more, re-learning things about myself and doing things I love.
