Sandrine Uwase Ndahiro examines how Covid -19 and isolation forced her to reconsider the nature of her friendships
I never expected Covid to change so entirely how I felt about friendship. But then, 2020 proved to be a year none of us could have predicted: endless lockdowns and online quiz nights that took their toll on everyone. When Covid first hit there was so much uncertainty and everything we take for granted became questionable, but friendship and family were dear to me. As an extrovert, being around friends and family has always been my comfort and my feeling of belonging. Covid 19 disrupted my sense of normality, as I only had limited time with both my friends and family at any given moment.
