Length of Interview
Scott Galloway interviews Noah Romelien, a 20-year-old sophomore student that studies Digital Media, via Zoom about the impact of COVID-19 on his life. Noah talks about his interaction with different clubs such as Smash Knights and Cross Tag Knights, which he was heavily involved with prior to the semester in COVID-19. During the pandemic, these organizations helped Noah cope with the stresses of properly quarantining. Noah noticed the lack of preparation for the transition online with his classes during the initial spring semester. While he was experiencing less difficulties with the classes, he did notice a few of his classmates being disgruntled with the professors. Thankfully, UCF provided programs for the Digital Media major such as Maya, which normally would have costed a thousand dollars per year. Noah reflects on his personal life with his mother living in New York due to her work while his father and brother remain in Florida. With the pandemic, Noah was finding it more difficult to see his mother physically throughout the summer and the fall. He also talked about difficulties with staying motivated, housing problems, and searching for a job. Noah concludes the past year has seen some difficulty and hopes that the end of the pandemic concludes.
