Role at University
South San Francisco, California
My summary of my audio clip is about how my friends went to their college campuses, and were able to still have some semblance of the fun that college has to offer while I sat at home, jealous of all the instagram and snapchat posts I was seeing. I was thinking, this should have been me, I lost the end of high school and now I'm losing the start of college while many of my friends were just having fun like it was no tomorrow. However, I knew that this wasn't about me and that all my actions would lead to greater benefits down the line. It may not have a been a fun time throughout this pandemic, but knowing there is light at the end of the tunnel, I'm optimistic about how my social life will turn around once we head to campus.
