Review the questions

You don’t have to answer every question. Instead, consider them your guide in reflecting on your experiences during the pandemic. If you have something else you want to talk about that isn’t in the questions, feel free!

Record yourself

Unless you have a professional microphone, your phone is probably the best option for recording yourself. We also have recording equipment that you can use at the library. Just let us know if you’d prefer that option. After you’re satisfied with your recording, upload the audio file.
