I’m an undergraduate international student from India currently studying Architecture in New York. Due to the pandemic, I had to leave New York and stay with my sister in North Carolina. Since March, we’ve been isolating ourselves and I’ve been taking classes online here. A few reasons I didn’t go back home to India were because of the travel restrictions in place for most of the summer, the added difficulty that comes with taking classes online with a time zone that is 9+ hours ahead, and the health risk for both my family and me. For the past few months, my mental health has taken a hit and has deteriorated and I made this video to describe how I feel about the word ‘Home’ and how its felt fleeting and temporary over the past 2 years that I’ve been studying abroad and how COVID 19 has only made that worse. - Aashna Singh, India
