Celeste Velazco, born and raised in Venezuela, is an advertising and political science student at the University of Florida. Her student life consisted of working three jobs, being a full-time student, and hanging out with her friends. But everything changed once COVID-19 arrived in the United States. She discusses the struggles she and her classmates experience as both work and school turn remote.

On the other hand, she offers an insight into University of Florida's response in relation to the virus and the social movements during the summer of 2020. She also provides a glimpse into the current state of the pandemic in Spain, given that her brother resides there with his wife. Finally, being a resident of Florida, she provides her input on Governor DeSantis' decisions during the pandemic.
