I don't meet a lot of friends every day, because I'm still student so as a student you know all the other students in your class or your school! Nothing new.

I meet people every day in my job, because I'm working for a huge international company, that have 500 employees, so each day I'm seeing a new employee. This is a great opportunity, to meet new people to have lunch together and share their experiences. Fortunately, they all come from different countries and the culture is different, so every time I meet them, I learn new things from them. It's like visiting each time new places and gaining new experiences.

Honestly, I've never been an open person, so COVID-19 hasn't changed my life much. I enjoy time with my family and my very close friends
