Back in April for one of our first episodes, ATMI senior producer Quinn White shared her story about being in college in New York City when coronavirus cases were first starting to rise. She made her way back to Alaska safely and has spent the summer here.
Now that cases are down in New York and the fall semester is here, Quinn is returning to college. Except she’s not going back to Mount St. Vincent in the Bronx. She’s headed to another pandemic hotspot. Los Angeles.
Fellow senior producer Daisy Carter connected with Quinn over Zoom on August 7th 2020, to talk about her move.
Hosted by AJ Yambao.
