It's been a really fun project to do and it definitely makes you think about the resilience and range many people have shown through this pandemic. There's been a lot of hardship and confusion but also growth and creativity. Thus, I think human beings are very gifted in terms of making the most out of almost any situation.

Also, this project has really shown me what it means to be a leader and how that role can be very fluid among a group of likeminded individuals. 

* And I look forward to meeting my co-hosts in person!😆
