Quarantine. Isolation. Social distancing. None of these things were part of our conversations a couple weeks ago, yet now they shape our lives and psyches. For Generation Z, a future once ripe with plans and possibilities has been put on hold. Like the rest of us, their lives have been shaken up: kicked off college campuses, cut from jobs, and now quarantined with and without family.
We reached out to hundreds of Gen Zs around the country to see how they’ve been impacted. This is what they told us about how they’re feeling, coping and even finding moments of joy.
