Humans of Community: Audrey Weiss


“I had an interesting start to COVID. Everything really bad that could have possibly happened that everybody [else] went through all happened to me the first two weeks. And then after that, I was just chillin’. I’m a dancer, and I’ve just been really happy to get back in the studio. We were online for a while, and trying to dance online is awful, trying to sync up with people through zoom, and my really bad internet. So now that I’m back in the studio, three or four days a week, it’s super nice and it makes me really happy. I think exercise obviously is something that’s good for your mental health, so it’s like the combination of that [and] listening to music. I think a lot of people when we got back in school in person last year were like, ‘Okay, cool. We’re back after two weeks and I’m done with this. I want to go back home to [virtual] school. I want to sleep all the time.” I’m still so happy for every second that I get to be at school, and do everything in person. So I don’t think that’s going away anytime soon.”
