Claire Maisto Reflects on Preparing to ‘Graduate’ Amid Uncertainty
Across the country and world, we’ve heard stories about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted college graduates — from changes in the ceremonies themselves, to having to start their adult lives in the middle of a historic health crisis.

We’ve all faced some level of uncertainty over the past several months, and some of us have even undergone major life changes in that time. So, chances are, you’ll vibe with this on some level. Check out “Graduate” below!
