Tell Your Story – California during the time of COVID-19

Tell Your Story - Marie, Pasadena
How I decorated the living room for Prom 2020: A Night at the Theater

Marie, Pasadena

“I got sent home from college. My a cappella group’s tour to Puerto Rico was cancelled. My sister doesn’t have an in-person graduation. My girlfriend doesn’t, either. No closing ceremonies, etc. But we aren’t suffering much. We have it good.

“My friends from Stanford text every day about when quarantine could lift, and every day it changes. I don’t think we should go back to school so soon. It would be dangerous. There are going to be so many more waves of this. I just want it to end. One clean sweep. But it probably won’t go that way.

“I made an online zine. Jamie and I just made a beading shop called ‘Bored Beads.’ I got my first D the other night. I don’t know. I’m doing fine. I’m pushing through. Keeping myself busy.”

Marie, 19
