2021 will be my __1st___ year at Vega:
Hobbies/favorite activities: dancing, writing, boxing.
What was the hardest part about summer 2020: Being apart from my friends and family, especially my sister, for almost 4 months, and, even though I tried to talk to everyone during this time, sometimes I felt really alone and separated from everyone, and I could also see how much they were suffering too and how hard it also was for them not being able to socialize with other people.
Something new that I learned during the pandemic/summer 2020: That I have the ability to make others feel better and forget, for a moment, whatever problem they may have. I made sure to check in with all of the people I care about and that are important to me, even though sometimes I didn’t feel like it, because I know the importance of feeling that someone is looking after you and that cares about you.
What are you most excited for for Vega 2021: Meet new people and get to know everything about them and where they are from and what makes them themselves, as well as hanging out with them and make up for the time we lost during this pandemic.
