At the end of last year, students at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, along with students from seven other MCPS schools, produced a publication, Coming Of Age in a Pandemic.
Three students behind the magazine—Karenna Barmada, Aaron Tiao and Neha Kohli—were on WAMU 88.5 on Oct. 27 to discuss their project, what it’s like to be a young person during the pandemic and how they’re connecting with each other and their community. Hear the recording.
You can read a digital copy of Coming of Age in a Pandemic here. You can order free print copies of the magazine here. The students are also raising money for schools in our district that do not have the resources for print and/or web journalism. Donations can be made here.
