Length of Interview
This interview was conducted as part of the Fall 2021 HIS3600, Professionalizing History Majors, class. Margaret Hammond interviews Emily Garcia, a 19-year-old junior student that studies biology, via Zoom about the impact of COVID-19 on their life. Emily was in the middle of their freshmen-year second semester when COVID-19 caused them to move back home. Not only were their courses moved online, but the pandemic caused Emily to address certain aspects of themself that they likely would not have without their new excess of time. They discuss their journey of self-discovery, being Hispanic during the Black Lives Matter Movement, and how their education was affected by COVID-19. They end the interview with a motivational sentiment for people-of-color.
