One major impact during the COVID pandemic was the shift from in-classroom learning to virtual learning such as zoom classes. Now a local fifth grader has penned a book about her virtual learning experience during the pandemic and hopes others will enjoy it.
NBC 5 says Nashiy Price wrote the book Virtual Learning: My Experience with Virtual Learning. It was about her experience in third-grade when the pandemic turned her in classroom learning into a virtual learning experience. Price was attending the Leadership Academy at John T. White Elementary when she was moved into virtual learning.
The story tells of the challenges and rewards in a fun rhyme way. Nashy read her book to NBC 5, "It is now time for lunch. My favorite part of the day. Sandwich, juice, and fruit all taste yummy from mommy's cafe." The 10-year-old student got her book published in May and even held a few book signings. NBC 5 says that her writing skills come from her mother who is an established author.
Price's first book Virtual Learning: My Experience With Learning During A Pandemic is available on Amazon and at Target, Walmart, and Barnes and Noble. Price recalled the day she saw her book in print telling NBC 5:
"I got the book. It was so cute. I was looking through the pages. I was amazed. And I was literally so happy,"
Price's mother Mianca Wright told NBC 5 she is encouraging others to go for their dreams, be confident and don't be afraid to make mistakes.
