Irene attends an English school and does synchronised swimming at competitive level. She was never really worried about getting the virus herself, however, when the lockdown began to drag on, she feared that it would never end. There were some positive aspects: in Milan, for example, she noted a greater solidarity between people, and she particularly noticed the lower levels of pollution during the shutdown. Consequently she began to ask herself what she could actually do to ensure that everything just didn’t go back to how it was before. The pandemic led her to understand that we humans are the problem when it comes to pollution. The lockdown also meant she had to interrupt her sports training and thus made her reflect on whether it was worth continuing, with all the sacrifices involved in training for hours each week.
