Hi! I'm Smera, an 8th grader in Chicago. The quarantine has generally had many affects on me, and my school. After the majority of the schools shut down, including mine, we resorted to doing online lessons instead.
I found this much less affective as we only had lessons twice a week and not for all the subjects, therefore we were not getting as much information as we needed to be able to complete our end of year algebra exam.
On the flip side, I’ve had lots of time for my hobbies, such as art and I’ve used that to my advantage, generally having more time to draw!
