“I’ve found my place here…it’s my home here too.”

Sinenhlanhla Zungu, a PhD candidate at Lehigh University in the US, was giving her first talk at a conference in New Orleans in February 2020, when she first heard about the coronavirus. She didn’t know it then, but the pandemic would come to determine so much in her life, from the hobbies she would suddenly take up, to whether she could come back home to South Africa.
