What began as a random idea, mentioned in a group chat full of bored college students, turned into a bustling blog: Beyond the Pandemic. Our blog founders Sophie Phillips, William Liu, Julianne Gless Valera, and Grace Ling worked together to create a space that tells the stories and perspectives of people across the globe to a wider audience. Our mission is to amplify the voices of those who remain inaudible, and also bring you fun and engaging content that you’ll love. Although Beyond the Pandemic largely focuses on the pandemic, we seek to cover a wide range of topics to generate content to inspire and empower people like you. Thank you for your continued readership and support, and stay tuned for new articles every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday!
