What It’s Like To Come Of Age During A Pandemic (Rebroadcast)

Missed school dances and field trips. Surging rates of anxiety and depression. A highly-politicized return to in-person learning.

The last year and a half has certainly been rough on teens across the country.

But what else has it meant? Introspection? Growth? Connection? Action?

For three students at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, all of the above.

We hear from them about what it’s really like to be a young person during the pandemic. Plus, how they’re connecting with their community — and with themselves — through student activism and documenting teen life.
