Masked Selfie of Samantha Martinez against a blue floral background with the title

My favorite mask because at the beginning of quarantine I was always losing my mask every day!! My mother made me buy a mask of my choice that I could reuse (Knowing I like to recycle) and I picked it in honor of my little sister whose name is Flor. A flower for a flower. . . now I don’t lose my masks anymore and I get to save lives!

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.
