To say that the novel coronavirus has changed the world would be an understatement. In the Span of a few months, the pandemic altered the way we work, learn, interact and the way we approach our health and surroundings. This pandemic has left each one of us with our own set of learnings and stories that we will look back to for years to come.
The Jindal School of Journalism and Communication endeavoured to bring these stories out and invites young minds who witnessed and experienced this era during their teenage years.
Write to us or send in your recordings on the theme, “How the pandemic changed me?” and be a part of this one of a kind Young Storyteller Competition.
So, what’s your story?
Winners get an opportunity to seek guidance from veteran journalists like Professor Thomas Goldstein and Professor Kishalay Bhattacharjee.
