"The effects of COVID on this generation (teenagers) have been so hard."Zoe's right. Yet, we don't talk about it. The world hasn't acknowledged us, hasn't allowed space for our stories, and so today we set the stage for 3 teens to tell their stories, unapologetically. The moments of joy, alongside our struggles. In the second episode of our two-part series, we explore the journey of the pandemic world, through the eyes of Mia Dabney, Zoe McDaniel, and Syd Walter. Every story of the last 365 days is different, and the three of us don't speak for all teens. Yet, despite how different our stories may be, we all are humans who felt the weight of this time. And so that can bond us together.To learn more about Teen-y pod and to "meet" the storytellers behind this episode, check out our Instagram @teeny_pod
