Voices of The Pandemic, Episode 1
Written by Grace Davies on March 17, 2021
Welcome to our new series, “Voices of the Pandemic”, where we interview Kent students, staff and residents about their unique experiences and perspectives on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In our first episode, I sat down with Senior Interior Design student Rebecca Dearth. Dearth was a part of the KSU Florence study-abroad program when the pandemic crashed into the U.S last March. Forced to leave within days, Dearth had to leave many memories and objects behind in Florence and re-enter a totally changed country. In our interview, she talks about how this affected her creative process and how it took a long time for her to get back to a creative mindset.
