Hi, my name is Mredul Bhowmick and I currently attend John F. Kennedy High School as a senior. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my senior year ended sooner than later. I was deeply saddened to find out that I won’t be able to attend my prom, senior activities and even be able to walk the stage during graduation. Many seniors have been affected by this pandemic because it’s our last few moments we are able to stay together before parting our separate ways when we go to college. Luckily I was able to experience prom my junior year however many seniors couldn’t and wasted money on their dress. Additionally, this pandemic has affected me with my current workplace. I work at Knotts Berry Farm and they temporarily closed the workplace so I am currently running off unemployment. Overall, this pandemic has affected me by canceling my senior year as well as my workplace.
