What I heard when I returned to school

Many students are going back to school for in-person learning. RadioActive youth producer Charlotte Engrav is one of them. She feels mixed emotions.

In this creative audio diary told entirely through sound, she shares her experience with anxiety during school after over a year of virtual classes.

[RadioActive Youth Media is KUOW's radio journalism and audio storytelling program for young people. This episode was entirely youth-produced, from the recording to the audio editing.]
