What I love about my neighborhood is that communities are highly connected. The series of parks near People’s Square is special to me. Parks in China are usually gated and don’t typically allow people on the grasslands for specific reasons. But many of the parks in this area are open to the public, so I’m able to take naps, explore and get some inspiration when I can sneak in. Being in a mega city like Shanghai during the pandemic has helped with keeping my creativity flowing. I feel very supported and grateful, while trying to live a more accountable and sustainable life.
