How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic only really affected me during the lockdown period. It was really difficult for me to keep up with my school work which was already tough as I’m in my final year. Also, my social anxiety became noticably worse when the lockdown period was lifted. It was so difficult for me to interact with my own friends let alone being at school. I was so scared all the time and having anxiety disorder wasn’t helping matters either.
