The Wider Image: Scarred by 2020, Gen Z looks to a COVID-free future
Solene Tissot, 19, a university student who studies at the Sciences Po, poses for a photograph on a street in Paris, France, December 11, 2020. Tissot, who moved to Paris two years ago to study at the Sciences-Po university, is now seeing a psychologist. She has been diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorder, conditions she says were triggered by the loneliness brought on by COVID-19 lockdowns. Tissot no longer attends lectures in person because her university has cancelled them. Movement restrictions often make it unlawful for her to visit friends at home. She has not seen her grandparents in a year. Her course requires her to do an internship. But with many firms operating remotely, she is struggling to find somewhere to take her. Next year, she was due to do a study year in Lebanon - where her boyfriend lives - but it's unclear if travel restrictions will allow it. Once she graduates, finding work will be harder because of COVID-19. Tissot though, is looking to the future. She is learning Arabic, in preparation for the trip to Lebanon she hopes will go ahead. "What I hope for is also that we can go back to a life that is a bit more normal, and that means being able to see friends without it being illegal to go to their place," she said. "It's true that 2020 didn't leave much room for good cheer, and I would like to have that again." REUTERS/Gonzalo Fuentes SEARCH "GEN-Z COVID-19" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
