I missed my friends and going to school. I missed the most playing on the playground.

I learned to navigate through computer technology and Zoom. I learned to study with my mom and submit homework through Canvas. I didn't like to study with my parents. I preferred my teachers!

I worry that my brother and parents might get sick with COVID-19. The bright spot was that my older brother moved back home from college.

I love to go to school five days a week and learn in person and be with my classmates. It’s challenging to keep a mask on my face and not see my classmates’ smiles.
