Staying positive with Duaa: in her own words

My name is Duaa and I am a student at Pursuing Independent Paths. I wanted to share with PiP supporters some information about me: what is my passion and how I stay optimistic in coronavirus times.

Since the lockdown started I am staying at home with my mum, brother, and sister. The hardest part is that I can’t see my family and friends, but we talk a lot on Skype. To stay positive during lockdown I am trying to keep myself busy and help out at home. My favourite indoor activities are listening to music and watching movies.

I practice voice acting at home, I look forward to coming back to performing. Drama is my favourite session at PiP. I feel happy and excited when I am on the stage and supported when people cheer for me. I perform at the annual PiP Drama Show in a theatre.
