Grade 12 and First Year of College
During graduation season of my senior year of high school, I was interviewed about my experiences as a senior in high school during the COVID-19 pandemic. I spoke on the emotional and mental taxes the pandemic took on me throughout the school year and my thoughts on the future of the virus.
During my first year of college, my Journalism professor recommended me to do another project with the day show with a similar goal. This time, rather than a traditional interview, I compiled a collection of videos that showcased my experiences as a college student during the pandemic. Then these videos were edited together to create a vlog showcased on the Today Show in December of 2020.
