Follow digital blogs: Digitalization has definitely fastened due to the current situation we are in and will continue to change just as fast in the upcoming period, thing that makes it really important to keep oneself up to date to all the changes and requirements that will make a difference in the near and long-term future.
Volunteer: New and challenging contexts will always consist of the perfect opportunities to understand the world and its needs better, as well as understanding what is required of each person to keep up with the changes happening and develop the skills needed, all of these while doing something good for the community.
