This is my favorite mask because it is the mask anyone can find anywhere, it is universal. Both guys and girls can wear it with no shame on it either being masculine or feminine. And it serves as an appreciation to those who work in hospitals and dentists.

But most importantly it is my favorite because it is the extra mask my mom always carries in her purse as a backup for when either me or my siblings forget ours.

The COVID-19 Masking Project was developed by the UIC Latino Cultural Center (LCC) in partnership with the UIC Asian American Resource and Cultural Center (AARCC) to engage students, faculty, staff, and community members in a creative and meaningful way during the COVID-19 pandemic.
