The days of our life. How COVID-19 changed our lives forever. I wish to tell our story through this series. I wish to write about the ups and downs the happiness and the sadness that we've all been through in this past year. I hope I do justice to all of us. If you wish to speak of your experiences or hardships, the comment section is always open. I think it's time we speak our stories. It's time to hear each other.

Think you can send me notes?
