Inspiring student clubs during lockdown.


I started by striking up email conversations with students: asking how they were doing and encouraging them to make use of their time at home by learning new skills or trying something new. I also gave them examples of activities I’ve been doing myself, such as at-home workouts and learning French.

Once I got them interested, I shared a list of activities that they can work on remotely, each relating to their club’s objectives. They came up with brilliant ideas and put so much thought and effort toward executing them. It was very rewarding to work with them and witness how they were making the best out of an otherwise limiting situation.
