“These days, like all my friends, I have to study online at home. But it’s different for me because I’m from a low-income family. I have to work and also study. It’s tiresome, but I can do it”
Every morning, I do a check-in for class. And later, I work at a garage I worked for during my internship to do repair works. ‘My ears are listening; my hands are working.’ If I have to join a video call, I will do it while doing my jobs. The teachers understand that I need to earn money for the family.
Of course I’m afraid of getting COVID, but I have to work to support my family. I decided to study online and work at the same time. Anyway, I wear a mask all the time. I always use alcohol spray and wash my hands. I never give up on protecting myself.”
#People may deal with hard times and are in distress now. I want everyone to be patient and don’t give up.We will get through this crisis together.
