What has been the hardest part of the last year of school, and the most rewarding: Hardest — trying to cope with the new hybrid schedule. Rewarding — The culmination of all my hard work paying off and having more restrictions lifted to be able to see my friends/family again.
What have you learned about yourself during the pandemic/how have you changed: It’s important to change your perspective on the world. I’ve learned so many things about myself that I never knew I could. It’s important to cherish everything you have and every opportunity that you receive. No matter how big or how small, everything is important.
