In the spring of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic halted mostly all in-person activities. Young athletes were forced off the fields and the courts—and into a downward trend of youth who decided they wouldnt go back.

This illustration depicts the issue. It shows a softball player getting ready to bat. Written on the ball coming toward her are issues student athletes face today, including lack of motivation and depression. These issues, experts say, are factors contributing to their disinterest in returning to play. Illustration By Mei Wai Lee.

Before the coronavirus pandemic, student-lead businesses were popular on the Sacred Hearts Academy campus. In-person transactions made these small mobile shops widely accessible to their classmate clientele. However, with the pandemic came many obstacles for these young business owners, whose profits went toward athletic expenses and college tuition. 

This comic illustrates the issue and how todays youth contributes to a phenomenon coined hustle culture. This is the belief that one must work harder and longer in order to be successful. Instead of giving up, these entrepreneurs crafted and created products, like face masks, from home. They taught themselves how to run a digital storefront and once again, returned to business, as usual. Comic by Jillian Simpson.
