How has 2020 made you stronger?

Despite all the adversity and uncertainty this year, 2020 has made me stronger because I have focused my energy on the things I can control and try to avoid overthinking the things I can't control. It has been overwhelming at times but I am adaptable and know that my strength lies in myself and not my external circumstance

Where has your joy come from this year?

My joy has come from my family and friendship group showing me endless love as support during a time that has been incredibly challenging. From Zoom calls to socially distanced walks in the park, the small moments I have with my loved ones have kept me motivated throughout the year.
