I live in the city of Santiago, I am 29 years old and I am single but currently, I live with my girlfriend and my faithful pet, a 7-month-old feline. I am a systems engineer. As a result of this pandemic, my life has turned 180 degrees. I love to travel, jump from one place to another, meet new countries, I had already planned a trip to Europe this year. But the COVID-19 is dominant worldwide! Thus an imminent break in all activities. I used to think that my decisions depended on my life, since I was a child I like independence, although I call my parents periodically I have not lived with them since I was 18 years old.
With this pandemic, I had to rewind my life and accept that there are eventualities beyond our whims that sharply change our lives and I have to accept it. The COVID-19 pandemic isolates us and does not allow us to enjoy our usual freedom. A few weeks ago I read how shopping malls, marketplaces, shops, bars, etc. closed. In a way, I was indifferent, until I started to get affected when the airports closed and there was no inter-municipal transportation, I thought Juan ’Juan Pablo, what world do you live in? You’re selfish.”
Lately, I have not been able to fall asleep, there are people with many needs and this is getting worse every day, I have already started to take out my savings to provide a grain of sand to the closest people who need my support to supply their basic needs.
