About Nicola's work

I have based my project around my friends, growing up, how all of us feel about approaching adulthood and how coronavirus has impacted us. I feel as if university students have been the least considered during this pandemic and there has been very little support from the government for people my age.   


I have shown how my friends, now closest support network, are getting on with life in these strange times. It has been said that often those have nothing to look forward to romanticize the past. I feel as if I have been battling with this during the pandemic as the prospect of the future is bleak I'm often overly nostalgic and miss the past. I chose this subject to help me combat this feeling and find more moments in the present that I appreciate and enjoy.
