Volunteering for COVID-19 Response and Distance Learning
Numan Ali Mohammad Saeed from Jordan is the 5th year student of the Institute of Medicine program General Medicine.
“From the start of online learning, my routine has changed. To me, the 5th year student of the Institute of Medicine, the study process has brought some difficulties. Many teachers assign voluminous material to study yet I manage to cope with the workload. Some courses include practical training. In self-isolation, there are no opportunities to practice and this further complicates the study process. Teachers provide us with lectures according to the curriculum, give assignments for homework, which we then send them back for checking. I would like to commend the quick and substantial feedback that fosters fruitful collaboration between us.
I have decided to volunteer and join the COVID-19 response. Currently, it is the most urgent issue and I have a chance to help Petrozavodsk every day in the current situation. I do not have enough time for leisure and hobbies, which makes my free time all the more precious. Cooking (dishes following my recipes such as mansaf, grilled fish, kabsa, katayef), helping friends with studies, performing my duties as dormitory floor supervisor, online games, and talks with my relatives are my main occupations outside studying and volunteering.
