People tend to value their lives more, their relatives, their friends

Brazil, Resende: Gabriela Pimenta, 2nd year of High School

What affected the most about my routine, obviously, as a student, was not being able to go to school, and also, what I used to do in my free time, for example, doing things outside of my house.
