Description

"I am spending much more time video calling my family since I am now more or less isolated in my small dorm room. Once when I called my sister, who is two years younger than me, I almost burst into tears when my sister was the one begging me not to end the call after an hour into it. She used to be more unwilling to communicate, and I was already accustomed to begging her not to end video calls before the pandemic. Now she could understand my loneliness and fear, or she also misses me more than before. This reminds me how much I love her, how much I miss her, and how much I need the support of family when facing all the uncontrollable things alone and far away from home." (She/Her/Hers/class of 2022/Psychology/ Beijing, China/Northfield, MN)
