Growth – Caroline Steidley
These past 14 months have been nothing short of chaotic. With so many changes and obstacles, I have become a completely different person than I was before COVID-19 struck the US. I have grown and evolved, and for that I am thankful. I have developed interests for new activities, learned more about myself and overall grew as a person. As we are in the midst of spring and flowers are beginning to blossom, I am in awe of the beautiful petals and colors. Because of the pandemic, I have changed and preserved, just like the flower in this picture. Although the lockdown was gloomy and challenging, I figured out more about myself and flourished into who I am.
