I usually meet new people because I'm a baker also a computer engineering student, so I can meet new people at work or university.

I am new in the company so i meet new people everyday. But, I am not often talking with stranger. I like to talk with co-worker about work, and sometimes is sports.

I met my classmates 2 months ago. I am a student, and there is covid 19, so I can't meet often new people.

It´s really difficult to meet new people right now, but still we can use different social networks and don´t forget we are alive.
