Maryam is from Nigeria, she currently runs a masters degree program in philosophy in the school of political science and public administration of Suzhou University. At the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19, everyone was worried and confused most especially since there were a lot of rumors in the society. I however felt what was most important was we maintaining a rational and positive attitude. I felt the need to reassure the public through my own little way, hence I wrote the poem emphasizing on how temporary the situation will be most especially since we were keeping a United front in combat against the virus. 这位来自尼日利亚的女生叫欧莎莉，来自苏州大学政治学与公共管理学院的哲学硕士。疫情期间，她和同学们都呆在学校里。面对突如其来的疫情，看着医护人员、老师、社会上各类人士都在忙碌抗击疫情，欧莎莉十分感慨，她说：“在疫情突然爆发时，大家最为担心和困惑，尤其是社会上有很多谣言。但我觉得最重要的是我们要保持理性和积极的态度。我觉得有必要用我自己的一点小小的方式来安抚公众，所以我写了一首诗，强调这样的形势将是非常短暂的，尤其是在我们坚持统一战线抗击病毒的情况下。”下面我们一起来欣赏。
