Life in the Time of Corona: Samanike Hengst

7 April 2020

2018–20 US teaching assistant Samanike Hengst talks about the stress of traveling during the current crisis and how she is adapting to life back in the US.


The story she tells is her personal experience.

There were mix-ups at the airport, with staff and flight apps being unclear as to whether my flight ... was taking off or not. I almost panic-booked a new direct flight leaving an hour earlier. Thankfully, my flight took off.
In the end, I think that it is important we all be there for each other as best we are able during an unprecedented time like this.
