Hopes, dreams, fears

The impact of the lockdown and prolonged isolation on young people’s mental health hasn't been talked about. Amidst the discussions about life during lockdown and plans for a post-coronavirus world, Company Three wanted to give young people a space to express their hopes, dreams and fears. 

For some, lockdown was overwhelming, and they mourned for their old way of life.
