Shelter-In-Place Mask Maker

This is my COVID story, a story filled with highs and lows, uncertainty and success. This is a story that taught me the true meaning of Resilience.

During the early days of the lockdown, I struggled to find a routine to calm my fears of the unknown. Through mask making, I was able to build on my connections and gain fulfillment by supplying much needed masks to friends and family.

Watch my talk and see how what seemed to be a simple solution to my COVID depression, quickly exceeded my expectations and taught me a valuable life lesson.

Masks and the process saved my life by guiding me back to self. We all have to take care of ourselves first. Thank you to everyone for helping me realize how resilient I could be. Without you I don’t know how I could have made it through this difficult time."
