In this sharing session, Paulina Barszcz (FS115/16, University of Oxford) will share with you her experience in finding new job opportunities after furloughed and how to endure mentally.

Date&Time*: 16 May (Sat) 9pm (GMT+8, Beijing, Hong Kong)
Enrollment deadline: 15 May (Fri)
In this sharing, Nikita will be speaking about the different apps and methods of communication that have been adopted, or have increased in popularity during the pandemic, according to different age groups in the UK. This will be based on anecdotal evidence and personal observation.
Also, she will share with us the book: The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. This book had a profound impact on the way that Nikita thinks about human communication. She will share a bit about the context of the book, who wrote it (and why) and then will speak about the book’s impact and legacy, as well as her personal reflections.
