What is your current status? (For example: University student, post-grad student, young adult, or other?)

Guiding questions for entries:

1. If you could tell your past self from March 2020 something, what would it be?

Testimonies can focus on any one of the questions or can address a combination, it is up to you. You do not need to quote the questions in your entry, they are meant only as a guide to help you!

You can see existing submissions on the Browse Contributions page if you need inspiration. If you are submitting in a language other than English please submit the translation below as well.

Please submit an image of something meaningful to you that is relevant to your entry, or simply of yourself! If you are submitting your diary by voice note or video, this is where you can upload that!

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so while this is not obligatory, we would love one if you have one!
