Growing Up in a Pandemic
Our first Story Booth Capsule Showcase!
Our Story Booth partnership with filmmaker Maribeth Romslo is a new, simple, and simply amazing recording platform that captures true audio stories from youth voices. For this first Capsule, "Growing Up in a Pandemic", we invited storytellers 18 and under to share their personal thoughts and experiences from the heart of the pandemic. The stories range from tear-jerking tales of worry to triumphant social relationships and wacky isolation memories.
As you listen to these voices, you’ll remember a time that was fraught, but also a time when we found hope from a new perspective. As 7th grader Sara said in her recording: “There’s a whole year ahead of you and years after that. And you have your wonderful self, the one who made it through the year COVID struck the world.”
Thank you to all of our youth contributors, and a special shout out to the Minnesota State Arts Board for your support of this project.
Listen, reflect, and never forget…
