Interview Highlights
Q: Do you think the pandemic will make us a more socially conscious society? If so, how?
I thought to myself how there will be a shift in our culture on how we socially interact and with things we are so used to doing — what will this pandemic create for us into the future? Or will we go back to just how it was before the pandemic? What the things might look like, I don't know. I am imagining the elbow bump is a thing instead of a handshake — just that alone is a social interaction that could become normal... At the end of the day, I have faith in humanity. I think most of us will get the sign from this pandemic and understand we need to make bigger changes for each other, the planet, ourselves, and everything that surrounds us. I hope we all come together to see that change needs to be made.
