Student - University Of Southern California

As a first-generation and low income student, COVID-19 has made my freshman year of college one to remember. Being from Missouri, I already don’t see my family as much anymore. My sisters, who are some of my best friends, would usually look up ton me as a leader during times of crisis. Me not being home with them is scary for both me, them, and my grandmother. So not only am I not with my family, I’m too afraid to even go home. I was diagnosed with severe anxiety so with everything going on, it’s been rough trying to manage. Thankfully I’m currently residing in the dorms at my school, but with limited food and necessities. Honestly, COVID-19 has taken so much from people and has done a lot of damage in a lot of peoples lives, including mine.
