How long have you been at Ecolint?
I am in my 12th year at Ecolint

What has been your greatest challenge as a student, in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic?
I think the greatest challenge so far has been maintaining a good balance between my academic and personal life. Not being able to go out and participate in activities that I would otherwise be part of has frequently left me thinking I might as well sit down at my desk and study in my free time instead. I have been trying to develop creative ways of keeping myself busy in other ways in order to keep a good balance in my life. 

What have you learned during this time?
Although I was conscious of this before, it has really become clear to me that working in an environment with other people around me that I can collaborate with is a central part of my academic experience that has certainly been missing from my life in the past few weeks. 

How do you think Covid will change education (at Ecolint, and after Ecolint!) in the coming years?
I believe that despite how complicated this situation has been for schools, it has shown teachers and schools that have followed more traditional teaching methods in the past that there are many benefits that technology can bring to a student’s education. Ecolint has been at the forefront of melding technology into education and I think the current situation has to a certain extent, bolstered this through enabling the discovery of new incredible online tools. 

A favourite TV show, book, piece of music, or song that you have discovered during this time?
I have been very into a book on animal behavior called Are We Smart Enough To Know How Smart Animals Are? as well as the new Netflix show Outer Banks.
