"Hello my name is Viviana Sanchez I am a student at Humboldt State University and this is my last semester of undergrad! I am from Visalia, CA in the Central Valley. So if you know where Fresno is, I am 45 minutes East from there. I am very sad to say I do not live in Humboldt County, but when I did for school I loved it so much! I am a Sociology major with a minor in an Anthropology. I hope to pursue a career in Social Work or with Mental Health Wellness. Those I interviewed for this project are personal relationships who have become some of my greatest friends. They mean so much to me and I am thankful for their participation in helping me with this project. Overall, I would say 100 years from now, these people have been strong through COVID-19 and will continue to fight this fight that we are all fighting."
- "The overview of my project was to a look into a student or resident of Humboldt County in their day to day lives, their outlook on COVID-19, and how it has affected them mentally.
- Items that were talked about that are related to COVID-19, are the challenges they faced and the impact it has put on them either mentally, financially, or physically.
- The participants live in both Eureka and Arcata which help to get a feel or both cities and the outlook COVID has on them either in the major or minor city.
- The main subjects in my study were personal relationships I had made along the way while attending Humboldt State University. I am very grateful for their participation especially when it comes to something so dark. I wanted to look into the aspect of a student and/or residents mental health and how it has been affected because of COVID-19."
