This photography based storytelling project was created to give voice to a generation of students who, while navigating what in normal times would be the most transformative years of their lives, confront an even greater challenge in economic and social upheaval brought on by the coronavirus pandemic. In times of great challenge, art can channel our pain, lift our spirits, and point us to a more hopeful future.
