Check out this interview about a member of the BAZOOF! creative team whose family has been facing the coronavirus in China, and now herself living in North America.
Tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Evalyn Zhang. I am a graphic design intern at BAZOOF! I grew up in Henan, China where my family lives.
What brought you to Canada?
I always wanted to experience a culture different from my own, and Canada wins my heart with her beauty and diversity. I’ve been here for four years.
How has the coronavirus affected your family?
When the coronavirus spread in China, it was during the Chinese New Year. All the New Year celebrations were cancelled. Some of my family couldn’t unite because all the transportation was down. When they went outside, everyone needed to wear a face mask. The city was quarantined and everybody was out of work or school. The internet became a popular form of entertainment.
BAZOOF! has a fun read coming out soon! With everything going on in the world, the creative team have made adjustments and are continuing to work—heading to the printers March 30th. Then it is usually mailed approximately 10 days after that, so it should be on its way in the mail starting about April 9th. Here’s a look of a little of what you’ll find inside!
