About Zoë Kountoupes-Wilson

Hi, my name is Zoë Kountoupes-Wilson. I’m a 10th grader at Mandela International Magnet School in Santa Fe. I was born in Arizona but have lived in Santa Fe with my mom, dad, and little brother for most of my life. I play the violin and piano and have loved making other forms of art like photography or drawing since I was very young. I chose to make this project about Covid, and our community’s creativity during Covid, because I find it really interesting to see how we as people deal with world changing events through art. I also know that many people explored new creative hobbies while stuck at home during quarantine, myself included, and would love to see and hear about those experiences from others.
