She recently came out with a daily newsletter about COVID-19 that has now gone viral. She gives advice not only about coronavirus but also keeping up your mental health during the pandemic. A lot of people are experiencing anxiety and trauma from the quarantine. Everyone is going through a state of loss, whether that be the loss of a loved one, the loss of your daily routine, the loss of your high school graduation. Though the loss can vary in degrees of heaviness, we still have to acknowledge that loss.
