Hello everyone! Happy March! This month is actually my birthday month, so I’m excited for that! On the other hand, March marks a full year of the Covid-19 pandemic in my area which is upsetting. I hope everyone has continued to stay healthy and safe and that things are getting better!
February was Black History month, and I enjoyed reading many books by Black authors. Although this is a wonderful month, I hope we all can continue to read books from all different perspectives throughout the year to learn about different cultures’ histories and become allies to marginalized communities.
