"I told myself, no matter how I graduate, I would do it with a smile on my face for all the youth around the world who did not get the chance to experience their final year of high school... When my friends begin sulking, I gently remind them that we are lucky, regardless of how they feel." - Augustin, on a new normal without final exams, Grad Ball or convocation.


This as a reminder to everyone to check on your families but your friends as well. We are all affected by COVID-19 differently, but just as it affects someone’s physical health it may also be affecting someone's mental health.
