Geraldine Ramos Hernandez
Length of Interview
Scott Galloway interviews Geraldine Ramos Hernandez, an 18 year old freshman student that studies History, via Zoom about the impact of COVID-19 on her life. Geraldine discusses her freshman experience coming to the university during COVID-19. She outlines the change of modality in her high school that prepared her for the college courses online, yet laments about the lack of a fulfilling campus experience. Living in UCF’s dormitories, Geraldine finds it difficult to experience the first-year experience inhibited by the pandemic and regulations placed. Geraldine notes that motivation and organization has been the most difficult with classes only being offered online. Geraldine concludes that, as a freshman, she cannot speak too much on UCF’s response, yet does think that some changes could have been made to better prepare and she has hopes regarding her second semester at the university.
